Raspberries and More
Raspberries make a great snack for satisfying your hunger and keeping you cool for the whole day. You can make many recipes with them and also combine them with flour and fruits and prepare delicious cupcakes for your entire family. They are also used as garnishing in many great Mexican recipes such as salads, desserts, salsas and healthy smoothies.
Let us take a closer look at some of the great health benefits. Raspberries provide fiber. They are a rich source of vitamin C and manganese, and offer a moderate amount of vitamin K. Raspberries have a low glycemic index, so your body releases the energy from them slowly throughout the day rather than giving you a sugar rush. If you consume raspberries every morning with your breakfast, your immune system gets fortified.
Many of the most important modern commercial red raspberry cultivars derive from hybrids between R. idaeus and R. strigosus. Some botanists consider the Eurasian and American red raspberries to belong to a single, circumboreal species, Rubus idaeus, with the European plants then classified as either R. idaeus subsp. idaeus or R. idaeus var. idaeus, and the native North American red raspberries classified as either R. idaeus subsp. strigosus, or R. idaeus var. strigosus. Recent breeding has resulted in cultivars that are thornless and more strongly upright, not needing staking.
