Herbs and flowers



Raspberry, Rubus idaeus

Family of liliaceae

The plant of raspberry, with its pale-blue leaves, colonises large slopes of Apennines meadows.

The fruit ripens at the beginning of August and by using it we can prepare syrups, jellies and delicious jams, which have refreshing, diuretic and antiscorbutic effects. The fruits, if eaten fresh with sugar and lemon or with whisked cream, is one of the most delicious things of our life. The leaves of raspberry are also used to prepare a particular type of tea, which was thought to be beneficial for pregnant women.
