The Instacart guide to raspberries
Most people don't know that the raspberry plant is in the same family as the rose, which explains the thorny bramble growth of the plant. Raspberry plants bear the edible raspberry fruit and are perennial. Raspberry plants commonly get planted as dormant canes in the winter months.
Regions that don't experience cold winters use a system called long cane production. This system takes canes grown for a year in colder climates and transplants them, roots and all, in warmer regions that don't have a necessary cold to produce the proper bud break. The plants quickly flower in these warmer climates and grow early-season crops.
The raspberry plant can experience root rot. Therefore, farmers plant them on raised beds in fertile, well-drained soil. Raspberry plants have perennial roots, but quite a few don't have perennial shoots. Instead, they have biennial shoots that grow in the first season and bear fruit in the second season. The vigorous growth of the plant can be invasive if left unchecked. They propagate through basal shoots called suckers. These suckers extend underground and develop roots and individual plants. Raspberry plants are easily grown from cuttings that root well in moist soil.
Raspberries are often used in fruit salads. They have a tangy sweetness but are delicate and bruise easy. They make great garnishes for cocktails, or you can muddle them into the cocktail. Pastry chefs love using them to top off desserts like crème brûlée or chocolate cake. Making a compote from raspberries adds a sweet sauce that complements many types of desserts. Many chefs are using raspberry compote in entrees now, as it pairs well with pork, chicken, and many kinds of fish. Infusing your maple syrup with raspberries will make your waffles and pancakes a hit at breakfast.
