About the Washington Red Raspberry Commission:

In the cool, marine climate of the Pacific Northwest, Washington produces approximately 90% of the nation’s frozen red raspberry crop. By freezing raspberries within hours of being picked at the peak of ripeness, Washington raspberry producers preserve the fruit’s integrity, flavor, and nutrition value, for convenience and ease of use year-round.
From artisan bread and laminated dough to quick breads and bars, Washington red raspberries can add natural vibrant colors and intense flavors to enhance any bakers or pastry chefs’ creativity.
