In Season

Food in Season
The raspberry (Rubus idaeus) belongs to the same botanical family as the rose and the blackberry. Botanically speaking it is not a true berry (a fruit with many seeds scattered throughout the pulp) but an etaerio (or aggregate fruit) made up of drupelets (individual sections of fruit each with its own seed). Raspberries are high in fibre, iron, potassium and vitamins A and C and are super high in fibre, low in calories and supply you with a good dose of folic acid. They are thought to have been eaten since prehistoric times, but only began to be cultivated in England and France in about the 1600s
