Raspberry Leaf

Most people are familiar with raspberry as a summer fruit, with vibrant red berries. Raspberry is native to Europe, Asia and North America. They are a member of the rose family (Roseceae). It’s often found growing wild in the countryside, but it has also been cultivated since the 16th century. Various varieties of raspberry exist, which fruit at different times of year. The berries are highly nutritious, and delicious! As well as the fruit, dried leaves are commonly used as a tea. They tend to be harvested in early summer. The raspberry plant grows up to 2m high. It’s a deciduous shrub with prickly stems and a spread of between 1 and 2m. Raspberry plants prefer moist, slightly acidic soil. After harvesting fruited canes are cut back to ground level. Young canes are best supported for growth.
