Raspberries are a small native American flowering bush or trailing vine. The berries can be red, black, or golden. The red raspberry is what people traditionally think of as a raspberry. They are a member of the same family as blackberries, however, they are a bit different. There are subtle differences in the berry plants, but a more distinct difference in the flavors. Raspberries are touted by many as the best for making jam or jelly. The plants are easy to grow and are excellent for use in cooking or fresh eating. Raspberries are traditionally thought of as a northern fruit, however, they will grow and fruit in the southeast also.
