Tips and Tricks
- Peak season for raspberries is during the middle of summer, but they are available year-round in some markets as both fresh and frozen.
- Raspberries are very perishable and should not be exposed to the sun or warm temperatures for a long period of time. It is best to eat them the same day that they are purchased or picked. They can be stored in the refrigerator for one or two days.
