What about raspberries?
After you read about the Rosé Raspberries from Driscoll's, you might be answering raspberries to my question. Time for you to learn about this new variety.
🌹 What are Rosé Raspberries?
Rosé Raspberries are a proprietary variety developed by Driscoll's plant breeders. It got the name for it's pinkish color that resembled the color of Rosé wine. Don't be worried that these are unripe berries, they do not turn the bright red color of other raspberries.
Driscoll's breeders used wild varieties of raspberry variety as they were breeding to come up with a new variety. It takes a lot of work often decades to breed a new fruit and produce enough to then sell in grocery stores. It's a labor of love that I am thankful for.
The variety first hit stores in 2019. It took me until 2022 to track them down for the first time. Supplies have been limited but hoping to see more of them as time goes on.

👅 What Do They Taste Like?
If you have only had red raspberries from the grocery store you are in for a treat. Rosé Raspberries have an unique flavor that has floral quality to it with hints of peach. It's balanced with sweetness and tartness. As I was trying them out I appreciate them more as I eat each berry. It's very refreshing to find another raspberry in the grocery store with a different flavor profile than we mostly get. I like highly recommend them.
Black raspberries and golden raspberries are also grown but they are not commonly found in grocery stores. For that you normally have to turn to a farmer's market.
☀️ When in Season?
These raspberries are not available year round, so you have a limited time to find them. The berries are in season from June to end of August. The earliest I have ever seen them was in mid June.
🛒 Where to Buy
This isn't a complete list but this is where I would start if you are looking for them. The only store I can confirm to have seen them myself is Lunds & Byerly's
- Big Y
- Dorothy Lane Markets
- Giant Foods
- King Soopers
- Lunds & Byerly's
- Sprouts Farmers Market
- Stop & Shop
- The Giant Food Comapny
- Whole Foods Market
💲 How Much Do They Cost?
While these may be the tastiest berries in the store, they won't be your cheapest option. I paid $5.99 for 6 ounces but that was at a high end grocery store, so there is hope that you may find them cheaper somewhere but not by much likely. They are available in limited supplies. Hopefully they will catch on and we may see a price reduction in the future.
