Is this a raspberry?

I found this growing near my garden, about 2 feet away from a raspberry cane that failed to grow earlier this year. I'm in the Appalachian Foothills of North Georgia. I was wondering if it is a raspberry vine or something. Else.

It looks like blackberry.

RE: Is this a raspberry?

Agreed. The size and spacing of the thorns remind me of the Obsidian blackberry, although yours could be another variety or just a wild seedling.

Raspberries are mostly thornless, may develop some fine small prickles near the base when mature.

RE: Is this a raspberry?

i have raspberry and black berry and the leaves look more like my blackberry plants.

RE: Is this a raspberry?

I've noticed that blackberries tend to have angular stems and raspberries don't.
