When is raspberry season?

Do raspberries showcase the funniest shape and texture of all fruits? Probably! They even look like a fun toy or a trippy cartoon character. Once in our mouth the texture experience continues as that sandy texture vanishes into a velvet sort of feeling.

This pinky bubbly fruit is widely produced in our country. The three major states are California, Oregon and Washington. Raspberry season in California is long, taking place between May and November. Oregon produces raspberries between June and September and Washington between June and October. Raspberries are very soft and very very fragile, so it’s better to eat fruits that did not travel that long. Maybe you can go picking them locally in your area!? Hopefully yes, that can be so much fun too! You can check in the following chart the raspberry seasonality in each American state.

Raspberries are full of healthy components such as minerals and vitamins which will increase your immunity. Because they contain high amounts of fiber and tannin, consuming raspberries will have a positive impact on the sugar level in your blood. They are packed with antioxidants, which protect against cell damage, making them a powerful resource against aging and diverse types of cancer. They may improve arthritis too, although more research is needed to prove this.

The fun element definitely outplays the health part when thinking about raspberries! You can make the most delicious and good looking recipes with them. I would say it’s impossible not to! You can honor your guests with the most handsome white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, upgrade your lunch salad with a raspberry vinaigrette dessing or make any dessert stand out with a raspberry sauce.
