RV Roger supplies different varieties
Autumn Bliss 18 for 10, Joan J 26.50 for, Himbo 30 for 10.
Are they worth the extra compared to Autumn Bliss?
I don't know why they're charging so much, Brogdale has them at 16 for 10 ( + 6.50 p&p) and has this to say about them

An outstanding variety, fruiting on the first years growth, heavy cropper of juicy sweet tasting berries, that are much larger than Autumn Bliss and with a superior colour and flavour. Long cropping period from July through to October, freezes exceptionally well. Spine free. Highly recommended.

If the price for 10 or 12 seems a tad steep, then buy 5 or 6 and split some suckers off next year, to increase your plants. I started with 6 and within a few years had 24ft of them :)

I am sure there are cheaper places to buy.
Quick internet search says  if you buy 10 canes ScotPlants direct has Joan J for 1.19 per cane. Autumn Bliss for 1 per cane. Postage is a thing. 5.99 up to 1KG, 7.99 up to 20Kg.
NOTE I've never bought from them so I can't say if they or their plants are any good.

True I just wondered what different varieties have different prices.

Because some are better and you get what you pay for.
Except when some are hype, then you pay for hype. Regardless of whether or not they are actually better. But in this case it's not hype as the reviews on here indicate.

By better I mean flavour, yield, fruit size, longevity of fruit-will it be nice for ages or go to mush in 5 minutes, harvest season (long or short season) ability to freeze/ be preserved, ability to be managed etc.

Thank you, I wonder if Himbo for example is real worth the extra compared to Joan J.
You don't always get what you pay.
