Does Gene Boerner have thorns

I bought a Gene Boerner last year an a whim. I noticed that none of the stems had any thorns. None of the later stems that grew had any thorns either. Nowhere in any of the references that I’ve checked does it mention that Gene Boerner is thornless. Is it really thornless or will it send shoots with thorns this year?

Thanks, Paul

Mine is not thornless.

Darn, I was hoping it was.

Thanks for the reply
