Australian raspberries have never tasted so sweet
Raspberries – packed with goodness
After much planning and varietal selection, our first specialty raspberry crop was harvested in early 2018. We specifically chose varieties suited to a range of growing regions so we could produce fruit from summer until late autumn – a little later than other raspberries – to keep raspberry lovers smiling until winter.
Our raspberries are sweet with a subtle hint of sharpness. They are a classic raspberry red, plump, firm and glossy.

Selecting and storing
Choose raspberries which look firm, plump and glossy and have an even colour as this indicates ripeness. They should be a classic raspberry red.
Some raspberries may be more conical than others but they should be consistent in size and have no signs of bruised drupelets or leaking juices. Raspberries are picked ripe and ready to eat.
How to keep your raspberries fresh
Store raspberries in the fridge as soon as possible after purchase.
Bring raspberries to room temperature just before eating as this brings out the fullest flavours.
Raspberries need tender loving care! Always wash raspberries before eating them. Carefully place into a colander, lightly rinse under cold water and gently pat dry with paper towel. Eat within a few days to enjoy them at their best.
