If you could take those glinting pick & mix sweets of childhood cinema trips and magically turn them into a real life berry, this would be it. With a flavour like bramble jelly laced with red raspberry cordial, the big surprise is that black raspberries (Rubus occidentalis) are neither a raspberry nor blackberry, but a totally distinct species from the forests of North America.

 

Containing a nearly 5 times the anthocyanins of popular blackberry varieties like ‘Navaho’, black raspberries have attracted the attention of medical researchers, with a growing body of studies unearthing some intriguing results.

OUT MARCH 5th

 

Based on an exhaustive review of the most cutting edge scientific research, my new RHS book reveals for the first time the secrets to growing crops for measurably improved flavour and nutrition.

 

Translating geek speak into a set of simple tips & tricks, it shows how anyone can grow maximum flavour with minimum labour.

A Phase 1 clinical trial at the University of Ohio suggested that consuming the fruit reduced the markers of DNA damage in oral cancer survivors . Additional test tube and animal studies also suggest their consumption may be linked to the inhibited growth of eoesophagus and other cancers. The researchers are careful to not make claims that go beyond their limited data & more clinical trials are underway. However being delicious, massively productive and a cinch to grow, to a greedy botanist like me any potential health benefits these berries may have are a just a fantastic silver lining.
