Raspberries grow in mountain areas and are harvested for freezing or puree, used in a variety of grocery products.
The fruit is harvested when it comes off the torus/receptacle easily and has turned a deep red colour. This is when the fruits are most ripe and sweetest.
Excess fruits can be made into jam or frozen.
The leaves can be used fresh, or dried, in herbal and medicinal teas. They have an astringent flavour and in herbal medicine are reputed to be effective in regulating menses.
We can offer you:
- frozen raspberries (block, crushed) in cartons with plastic bag of 15-20 kg
- dried raspberry leaves
Harvesting period is in July-August
