Rubus idaeus (raspberry, also called red raspberry or occasionally as European raspberry to distinguish it from other raspberries) is a red-fruited species of Rubus native to Europe and northern Asia and commonly cultivated in other temperate regions.
Raspberry is a member of the rose family (Rosaceae). It is a 1 to 2 meters high half shrub with both annual and biennial shoots.
In herbal medicine, it is primarily the leaves that are used. The berries are mostly used for culinary purposes but have also their uses as a medicinal herb.
