RED EUROPEAN RASPBERRY Rubus idaeus
Plants of Rubus idaeus grow to 1.5–2.5 m (5.0–8.3 feet). In its second year, a stem produces several side shoots, which flowers in late spring. The fruit is red, edible, and sweet. In raspberries, the drupelets separate from the core when picked, leaving a hollow fruit, whereas in blackberries and most other species of Rubus, the drupelets stay attached to the core.
