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.

Raspberries have been used as food since the earliest times. The cultivation goes back to the Middle Ages. Our raspberries come from our own growers in the Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Portugal and Tanzania.

HOW DO RASPBERRIES TASTE?

Raspberries are juicy and can taste from slightly tangy to sweet.

HOW DO YOU EAT RASPBERRIES?

You don’t have to wash raspberries, preferably not actually. When you wash them, they absorb water and no longer taste as good. If the raspberries are dirty, wipe them off with a piece of kitchen paper. Naturally you can eat them as a snack, but the delicate and velvety fruit is also particularly suitable as seasoning in dishes and desserts.
