RED RASPBERRIES

Availability:

We have two varieties of red raspberries. The early crop is ripe near the end of June, and the late crop is ready in the middle of August.

Picking Tips:

Pick the darkest colored raspberries. They are the sweetest. The ripest raspberries should come off the cane easily. If you have to pull at a raspberry, it probably isn't ripe yet. Look underneath of the leaves. Many people just look at the tops of the canes, and leave many beautiful raspberries near the ground.

Storing Tips:

Since raspberries are so delicate, rinse them under a delicate stream of water. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Nutrition Facts:

There are only 64 calories in one cup of red raspberries. They are also a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C.
