They're starting to ripen now in western Oregon. Invasive Himalayas. The awful things sprout up everywhere but they sure beat the heck out of the cultivated ones for flavor. My wife and I pick them to sell at our farmers' market booth on Saturdays.

Just picked 3 quarts yesterday. I like them but they have more seeds than other berries.

Wild definitely has a stronger flavor. I have 5 thornless apache that I'm getting a pint every day off of, much lighter flavor

Wish our wild black berries looked like that. They are small and not real sweet. Wasn't a good year for berries at all around here. I couldn't find enough good ones for even a cobbler.

It's prolly a good thing I don't go to your farmers market- you'd need a bigger truck! grin

Carl,
We have never in my neck of the woods considered Himalayas or evergreens to be wild blackberries. Wild blackberries is the name reserved for our native variety, never invasives.
The natives are just getting ripe here. Himalayas are still in bloom here. Everything is late this year. It has been dry but except for that one hot spell it has been one of the coolest summers I can remember so far. Even had to fire the heating stove up once this July.
Cascade berries are ripe though. They are pretty close to wild blackberries and they produce enough for me. We did use to pick Himalayas for jelly though when I was a kid. Never considered them worthy of pie.

Got ‘em here and can’t stop them. They make better wine than cobblers because of the seeds. lol

I've picked nearly 30# of blackberries this year, and still have more on the vine. I propagate the thornless (triple crown and apache) and even some of the better native ones. We have made blackberry jam, and I just started a 5gal batch of blackberry wine. Still have plenty for cobbler and other stuff. My goal is to build a solid hedge row of berry plants 150yds long, in hopes of harvesting 100# annually.
