The raspberry is an aggregate fruit and is botanically classified in the rosaceous plant family.
A distinction is made between summer and autumn raspberries. Summer raspberries grow on shoots that were formed in the previous year. Autumn raspberries grow on the shoots that are formed in the same year. Wild raspberries are found and picked in our forests, as well. They are very resistant and can be found everywhere; from the harsh climate of Alaska to the heat of Southeast Asia.
