Raspberry is one of the well-known berries in Russia. Though Mid-Europe is the native region for it, this berry is known in Ancient Rus since the 12 th century. Not only tasty & flavorful berries are edible, the leaves are also used for preparation of herbal teas & decoctions. The raspberry is considered to be the “superfruit” in most the European countries.
Raspberries are represented on the market in fresh, dried & frozen state. EU & USA are the biggest raspberry buyers. The frozen berries make about 10-13% of whole raspberry output. Currently the volume of production of frozen berries increases.
Poland, Serbia, USA, Chile, Hungary & Ukraine are the global leaders in raspberry production. Russia also produces rather large volume of this tasty & useful berry. The local raspberry is available only in summer. Due to the weather conditions its harvesting period is limited by two summer months (June and July). After 2014 South & Central American countries, such as Chile & Mexico, became the main exporters of this berry to Russia.
