Raspberry

Did you know?

Greek legend has it that the raspberry, highly prized by the Olympian gods, first appeared on the slopes of Mount Ida in Crete, hence its name: Rubus idaes, literally 'Ida's bramble'. In fact, the raspberry is native to the mountainous regions of Western Europe.

The return of strawberries to market stalls each spring is a great delight!  They restore colour to our plates, and above all, provide us with a good dose of vitamin C with antioxidant properties. And there's no need to hold back: they're very low in calories!

Good to know: in organic farming, strawberries must be grown in open ground.
