Produce 101 - Raspberries

Picking the best
When selecting raspberries look for plump, deep color, clean and fresh in appearance. Raspberries do not ship very well because they are highly perishable berry, so local grown raspberries are your best bet. Check raspberries containers for mold, overripe berries, and or leaky berries, which is a sign of overripe or distressed fruit.

Raspberries should be consumed shortly after purchase and will only last a few days refrigerated after purchase. Best when stored on a shallow tray single layer with paper towels placed over the top. Always remove moldy berries and consume the soft, overripe berries immediately and return the rest of the berries in to refrigeration. Like all berries raspberries freeze very well.
