Beautiful, Golden Raspberries

Pin It Now! I was "berry" tempted a couple of weeks ago while I was perusing the produce department at Fry's. I did a double take when I saw these golden beauties for the very first time in my entire life. Never seen or heard of a golden raspberry before, have you?

I bought them and ate them . . . and they were good. Tasted just like a red raspberry - maybe a slightly milder flavor, though?

Just to make sure these weren't some unnatural, modified, freaks-of-nature, I did a search on "golden raspberries." Turns out, they are completely natural according to wikipedia. The ones I bought are probably red raspberry derivatives and get their color from recessive genes for some kind of pigment I can't pronounce.

So, eat up! Raspberries contain antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C, manganese, and lots of other good-for-you stuff that you don't need to know in order to enjoy and benefit from one of God's delectable gifts of nature. :)

They look like albino rapsberries. lol I would guess a milder flavor as well-- just like drinking white grape juice versus concord grape juice.

However, I've heard that things richer in color are better for you.
