The raspberry is the edible fruit of a multitude of plant species in the genus Rubus of the rose family.

Many of the most important modern commercial red raspberry cultivars

The black raspberry, is also occasionally cultivated in the United States.

Purple raspberries have been produced by horticultural hybridization of red and black raspberries. Commercial production of purple-fruited raspberries is rare.

Blue raspberry, is a local name used in Prince Edward Country, Ontario, Canada.

Both the red and the black raspberry species have albino-like pale-yellow natural or horticultural variants, resulting from presence of recessive genes that impede production of anthocyanin pigments.


Raspberry are best eaten fresh out of the hand. They can also be used in jams, drinks and deserts.
