Rubus

-Thornless blackberries:

*Thornless blackberries that are the result of chimerism will revert to their thorny form if propagated by root cuttings:  "A classical example of an L.I periclinal chimera is the thornless blackberry. The epidermal layer of this type produces no "thorns" (the modified epidermal cells are correctly called "prickles"). The thornless epidermis covers a stem whose cells contain the information for the thorny genotype. This can be demonstrated by taking root cuttings. The adventitious shoots which differentiate on the root cuttings are not chimeral and therefore revert to the thorny genotype."

 http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/tisscult/Chimeras/chimeralec/chimeras.html

Thornless cultivars that are the result of a genetic mutation will retain the thornless characteristic even when propagated by root cuttings.  "...genetically thornless blackberry cultivars will remain thornless whether propagated from stem cuttings, root cuttings, or suckers."
