Wonderfully delicious, bright red-colored raspberries are among the most popular berries grown worldwide. They are a rich source of health promoting nutrients, minerals and vitamins as well as dietary fiber and antioxidants.
Availability: Early July - Mid August
When choosing raspberries, look for plump, evenly colored berries that have a soft, hazy gloss and are free of dents and bruises. Raspberries have tiny hairs called “styles.” These are a completely natural part of the fruit’s defense mechanism and don’t affect the taste or ripeness of the berries.
Raspberries are highly perishable and extremely fragile. However, a few simple, proper handling steps will ensure that your raspberries remain fresh and delicious. Under ideal conditions, raspberries should keep for one to two days in your refrigerator. For best results, we recommend that you keep your raspberries dry in storage and consume them as soon as possible after purchase. It’s also important to handle them gently when rinsing. Berries need to be rinsed just before use.
Fresh berries can be easily frozen until you’re ready to use them. To freeze raspberries, gently rinse in cool water then allow them to dry completely before placing in sealed containers.
