European Dewberry

Rubus caesius

This succulent sweet and sour summer delight is a highly nutritious fruit. Dewberry is rich in minerals, vitamins, organic acids, amino acids and fibres. Also, the whole plant, from the root to the herb, is used for its various medicinal purposes. Dried dewberry leaves can be made into a delicious herbal tea with notes of berry and green-tea. The blackish blue berries are used to make infusions, alcoholic drinks, juices, jams and desserts. Dewberries suit well in dairy desserts as well as in pies, pastries and cakes.
