About the raspberry
Raspberries belong to the genus Rubus, which is a member of the rose family. Most cultivated raspberries today derive from two species: the wild red raspberry (Rubus ideaus) and black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis).
The name ‘raspberry’ is believed to come from raspise, a 15th century sweet rose-colored wine, from the Anglo-Latin vinum raspeys, or from the Germanic raspoie, meaning ‘thicket’.
The raspberry is rich in several bioactive compounds, including anthocyanins, quercetin, vitamin C and ellagitannins, which help in the prevention of several chronic diseases, such as diabetes and obesity.
Raspberries are also rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals, as well as being low in calories, making them a great fruit to help with weight loss.
There are over 200 species of raspberries today, and they can be grown from the Arctic to the equator.
