Raspberries: A Field Guide
Raspberries are the eighth wonder of the world: delicious, beautiful, and packed with a greater diversity of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients than any other commonly eaten fruit.
Raspberries grow on woody, rambling canes in dense mounds called brambles. The most commonly grown (and eaten) varieties are European red raspberries (R. ideaeus) and a similar variety native to the United States, the American red raspberry (R. strigosus). Other cousins among the nearly 700 species in the Rubus family are blackberries, boysenberries, and dewberries.
