Plant Description: Red Raspberry is believed to be indigenous to Europe and parts of Asia, but is also widely found in North America, Britain, Scandinavia, and Scotland. It grows naturally in woods and heaths and prefers temperate environments. Generally, Red Raspberry is grown for its delicious fruit. Red Raspberry is a deciduous bush with creeping perennial roots and erect, hairy or prickly, yellowish-green biennial stems. Its alternate pinnate leaves are shiny and green on top with a soft white feltlike underside. The leaves have three to seven serrate and ovate leaflets. Red Raspberry blooms around May to July with small, yellowish-white flowers located on auxiliary drooping racemes. The flowers have 5 petals, 5 sepals, and numerous stamen and ovaries. The fruit produced by the Red Raspberry is an aggregate that, when picked, separates from a conical receptacle leaving an empty shell. It is deep red and very sweet.
