Red Raspberries grows in a variety of soils, from woods to fields to roadsides, needing at least partial sun with moist to dry moisture conditions. It will fruit only with adequate sun and adequate early summer moisture. Red Raspberry is a native perennial shrubby bramble that grows up to 7 feet high that produces biennial canes (stems) that are erect to drooping, but first year canes usually do not root at the tips if they touch ground nor do they usually branch. The Leaves are 3 to 7 parted with teeth. Occasionally there may be a 3-lobed simple leaf. New canes will typically have the 5 to 7-parted leaf, second year canes the 3 to 5-parted leaf. The upper side is light to medium green and underside is much paler, almost white due to soft fuzzy hair. The leaf stalk also has fine glandular hair. Flowers are 5-parted with white to greenish-white petals that are broad at the tips; the 5 green pointed sepals have velvety hair. Fertile flowers produce an edible berry composed of several drupelets that each contain a seed. When picked, the drupelets separate from the core stem (the torus) easily, forming a hollow base. Fruit is red at maturity.
