Like other berries, these little red gems pack a nutritional punch that makes their delicious flavour seem even sweeter. High in vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants, raspberries are an easy addition to the diet because of their palatable and widely-loved taste.
Stirred into yogurt or oatmeal, thrown into a smoothie, baked into delicious treats or just on their own as a snack; getting your daily dose of raspberries will help boost your immune system, keep your digestion moving, support your heart health and can possibly help to prevent certain types of cancer.

How to Grow Raspberries in Your GardenSoxx®
Grow raspberry bushes in an area that gets shelter from the elements, but is exposed to full sun. Like with other berry varieties, raspberry bushes can take a couple of years to bear fruit when planted from seed - so we recommend starting with already established canes from a reputable nursery if possible.
Raspberries Seed to Harvest Time: 18 - 24 months
How to Harvest Raspberries
Once berries start to mature and ripen, pick them every few days to get a continuous harvest. Picking them later in the day, once the morning dew has been dried by the sun, ensures they will not go moldy. Only wash raspberries once you are ready to eat them.
