According to #Greek mythology, raspberries were once white. But when the Zeus' nursemaid Ida pricked her finger on a thorn, her blood forever stained the berries red. The official scientific name for raspberry is Rubus Idaeus which means the "bramble bush of Ida"... And while our ancestors enjoyed the delicious juicy berries, they mostly valued the plant for its leaves and their medicinal quality. Later, in the 13th century, raspberry juice was used as red stain in artwork.
Raspberry has just become so much more exciting!
It's our first year growing raspberry; and it has been a very rewarding one so far. Our plant is a #Patagonian variety, so we weren't sure how it would thrive in warmer climate. We planted it in early spring. So far, so good though. Apparently it liked the place and care it receives, so it keeps rewarding us with a few berries every day. #raspberry#raspberrybush#homegrown#homegrownfood#homegrowngoodness#berries#fruit#organic#organicgardening
