It is high-time to protect Rubus crops in Perth with bird nets. You want a stiff and fine-weave net over a flexible and open net, as the latter will forever get caught up in the thorns of the brambles and possibly fatally trap a small bird. Note how the ripening of the fruit in the silvan is ahead of the youngberry.

I’ve done another taste-test this season and it is clear that the flavour of the youngberry has much more complexity and muskiness and toffee flavours than the silvanberry, but the silvan fruits a bit earlier so I think is still worth growing if you have any room left over after you’ve planted your youngberry.
