Raspberries ripen in the heat of summer, and are relatively easy to find in Maine in late July and August. The fruit is somewhat fragile, so find a local farmer and bring the berries right home! They are wonderful eaten fresh, or bake them into an old-fashioned pie. Whatever you do, keep the berries cool and eat them quickly! Fresh raspberries don’t keep long… but they are so delicious that won’t be a problem.
