Wild raspberries grow world wide, so exact origins are hard to pinpoint. The first cultivation of raspberries dates back to 2,000 years ago in Europe, as the earliest berry crops.
Cultivation in England and France began around the 1600s, and raspberries were considered a luxury item in North America in the mid-1800s.
Today, 400,000 metric tons of raspberries are produced worldwide, mostly in Russia, the US, Serbia, Poland, and Chile.
