A raspberry is an edible fruit that is small, round, and made up of about one hundred drupelets, each containing a central seed. Raspberries come in many varieties, with the most common being the red raspberry. Black, purple, blue, and golden varieties also exist, each with their own distinct sweet and tart flavor. All raspberry plants come from the genus Rubus and are perennial in nature, growing most successfully in mid-summer.
