Where Are Raspberry Seeds Located on the Fruit?

Save

Raspberries are a popular edible crop that is enjoyed in jams, jellies, fruit pastries and fresh fruit desserts. Cultivated summer-bearing and ever-bearing raspberries canes are purchased and grown by home gardeners. The plants produce fruit loaded with seeds.

Raspberry Plants

  • Raspberry canes or plants are set out in a prepared bed of soil with compost and manure. The biennial canes should be planted in fall or early spring.

Drupelets and Seeds

  • Drupelets are like cherries with an endocarpic seed (pyrene) in the center. According to Cornell University, 100 grams of raspberries can hold as many as 4,000 seeds, with one seed weighing 1 milligram.

Wild Raspberries

  • Wild raspberries are grown from seeds carried and dropped by birds and animals that then seed themselves into the ground. Wild plants are sporadic and unpredictable in growth and fruit production.

Seed Removal

  • Raspberry fruit is cooked with a variety of recipe ingredients for jelly, fillings and sauces. A home cook will construct a bag from cloth and fill it with the cooked raspberry mixture, squeeze it and extract the seed-free fruit juice.
