Raspberries the epitome of what summer fruit should be
Raspberries, along with strawberries, are the epitome of what a summer fruit should be. Soft, juicy, sweet and luscious. There are two types of raspberry, summer fruiting and autumn fruiting. A combination of planting both types can provide fresh fruit from July until October. Even a few plants can keep you supplied for a few weeks and raspberries can also successfully be grown in pot and containers. Not only are raspberries used for their fruit but their dried leaves have been used as hot drink infusions for centuries.
