Raspberries

Raspberries are velvety red-pink berries with a hollow core. The varieties of raspberry can differ in size, firmness and taste. This special fruit is related to the rose, its aroma and taste are reminiscent of this. Just like blackberries, they are composed of numerous little balls, the so-called partial fruits.

Raspberries are very versatile: they are tasty as a snack, and delicious for breakfast with yoghurt, for example. You can also use raspberries in salads, desserts and cakes.

Naturally you can eat them as a snack, but the delicate and velvety fruit is also particularly suitable as seasoning in dishes and desserts.
