Raspberries are a perennial bush-type plant that produces fruit on woody stems or canes. The fruit may be red, yellow, black or purple; however, the regular red raspberry has become the go-to reference for this fruit, a fruit so popular that people don’t even consider that there is more than one variety. Raspberries are an aggregate fruit. Each raspberry is a fruit cluster with many bead-like fruits called drupelets, clustered around a core or receptacle. Smash them and add them to your sauces, pies or desserts.
