Raspberries are a sweet and tart fruit that are commonly enjoyed in the summer months. They are small and delicate with a bright red color and a juicy texture. Raspberries are a great source of vitamins C and K, as well as fiber and antioxidants. They can be eaten fresh, frozen, or cooked, and are often used in jams, jellies, pies, and other desserts. Raspberries are easy to grow in a home garden, and are typically in season from late spring to early fall. When selecting raspberries, look for specimens that are plump and firm, with a deep red color and no signs of mold or bruising. Store them in the refrigerator in a single layer for up to three days.
