Nelson's Berries

Raspberries traditionally come in black and red, but they can also be yellow or purple

There are over 200 species of raspberries

Raspberries are rich in vitamin C, magnesium, iron, and calcium, and have more fiber per calorie than any other common fruit, including prunes

Raspberries are best picked in the morning or early evening when they are cooler-the sun tends to soften them which makes them hard to pick and even more fragile.

Raspberries also belong to the rose family (as do apples, plums, and strawberries)

 An individual raspberry, on average, weight about 4 grams and has 100 drupelets.  Each drupelet contains a single, central, seed.  

 Russia is the world leader in raspberry production
