Growing Your Own Raspberries at Home

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Raspberries are perfect to grow in your home garden and a tasty addition to meals or in a facial mask; packed with antioxidants, the fruit may be eaten fresh, or frozen to be enjoyed all winter
  • Depending on the variety of plant you choose, you may harvest berries starting in the summer through the fall. They can be grown in the ground or in containers; however, all plants are prone to root rot and fungal infections
  • Plants do best in soil pH from 5.8 to 6.2, and are ready for harvest when the fruit is rich in color and comes easily off the stem
  • Raspberries are rich in antioxidants, making them a healthy addition to fight against heart disease, age-related decline, circulatory disease and cancer

Best tasting straight from the bush, raspberries are perfect for your home garden and a tasty addition to a salad or as a snack. Growing your own will ensure you enjoy berries not sprayed with pesticides and insecticides. Although red raspberries are the most common, you have a choice of several varieties. They come in different colors, which ripen at different times of the year, allowing you to spread out your harvest.
