Raspberry



Raspberry (Rubus idaeus) a member of the rose family is botanically a one-seeded drupe and a small deciduous perennial and still grows wild in Europe. 

Raspberries need protection from heat and drying winds and do best in elevated  parts of the mainland. There are two main types of raspberry grown commercially, those that fruit once a year in summer and those that fruit twice a year, in summer and autumn.

Very fresh and fully ripe raspberries
Nutritional Value
Red and black raspberry are good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorous, iron, potassium, thiamin and low in sodium. 

Buying and Storing
Raspberry is picked without its central core, which remains on the plant.  This ensures that the fleshly picked raspberry is normally ripe but makes it very vulnerable to squashing  and other damage. 

Always select fresh looking cold dry raspberry with a bright clean appearance.  Mold is an inevitable hazard.  

Raspberries are very perishable and costly. It should be refrigerated and eaten as soon as possible. Like most berries raspberries will freeze well without sugar.  Raspberry water ice or ice-cream is also good for longer term storage. 

Prepare, Use and Serve
Wash just before using, drain thoroughly. A perfect but simple summer dessert could be a bowl of raspberries with sugar and cream, though because of their scarcity they are often combined with other ingredients.
