Time for the raspberry harvest

Raspberries are popular garden plants thanks to their fruits. The berries have a high vitamin content and are therefore an extremely healthy fruit. Raspberries are generally ripe for harvesting in summer and autumn.

The right time for harvesting is shown by the deep red colour of the raspberries. As the fruits are very sensitive to pressure, they must be harvested very carefully and are best eaten fresh. Depending on weather conditions, the bushes can be harvested two to three times per week. The fruit can be used in many different ways: to make jam or jelly. Or the harvested raspberries can simply be eaten fresh or served on a cake.
