  2. Hi Norman, that was very interesting and I enjoyed the read. I love raspberries and knew they were good for you, but didn’t realize how good!

    I’ve never seen the gold, purple or black versions. Then again, this makes sense given that I have come across other fruits and vegetables with unusual colors, such as purple carrots.

  4. I knew I liked raspberries for a reason! I have actually been on a major fruit kick lately buying big bags of frozen mixed fruit and eating by the bowl fulls. But my favorite is the raspberries and pineapple 🙂 So many benefits for women. I am glad I found this information, and am bookmarking your site, as I see you have so much to offer. I do have one question, with all these benefits, how much do you really need to consume to see them?

  6. Hi Norman,
    Living in India I have not much-taken Raspberries.
    Reading your post I was surprised to see such a tiny fruit has this much enormous health benefits.Wow! I think this fruit grows only in cold climates. Is there any way to grow it in tropical and hot climates.Otherwise, I should think of taking it in other forms.But looking at the fruit, my mouth is carving to eat this! Great post Keep it up.

    • Hello Prabakaran so nice to meet you. I have some great news for you and that is you have the right weather to grow this fruit. Just take  a look at this post that I have written on growing raspberries. Please let me know how it goes. Have  a good day.


  7. Oh my goodness I LOVE raspberries!! They can really get expensive in the stores so I actually planted some this past spring to take it upon myself to get the amount that I wanted! The goal this year was to get the plants to survive (since my father in-law had given them to me from his garden). They are a very hardy plant (which is good for me haha), they not only survived but produced! Can’t wait to see what we get next season! I do have a question, you say a health benefit is, “promotes Women’s health”. That is kind of broad. Is there specifics to what it’s benefiting in a woman that it wouldn’t in a man?

    • Hello Jamie so good to see you and thanks a million for sharing your story of success with growing your very own raspberry tree. Raspberry is great for females fertility. Hope this helps and thanks again, wishing you the best of good health.
