Raspberries are grown in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia.
Raspberries grow best in well drained soil, but can thrive in many soil types. They like a lot of sun, and prefer a not very shady place. Don't plant you raspberries in areas where tomatoes, potatoes, or eggplants had previously grown!
Raspberries are used in many delicious desserts. You can make pies, jams, ice cream, and use them as toppings for pancakes and waffles. I like to put them on top of my pancakes and make yummy smoothies. Raspberry leaves can be used to make tea.
There are over 200 known species of raspberries. Raspberries belong to the rose family. The binomial name of the American Red Raspberry is Rubus strigosus.
