Raspberries are the third most
popular berry fruit in the world after strawberries and blueberries.
They are becoming increasingly popular in Australia, partly driven by their increasing availability. New growing techniques and new varieties mean that the consumers can now buy fresh Australian raspberries at any time of the year, although they are most abundant from late spring until late autumn.
Cultivated blackberries are large, luscious fruit, unlike their wilder counterparts picked from the roadside.
