Raspberries

Raspberries

Description

Raspberries are a small, delicate soft red fruit. Each raspberry is composed of many small individual sections, each with its own seed surrounding a central core. There are three main types of raspberries- the seldom seen black raspberry, the relatively new golden and the more common red raspberry. Raspberries are fragile and perishable with a certain elegance attached to them and usually the most expensive of the group (black, blue, strawberry).
