The fun facts I have learned about raspberries today are as follows:
- Raspberries used to be called "hindberries" because female deer are so fond of them.
- Raspberries increase female libido while toning and contracting the uterus.
- Raspberries can be stimulating and cooling at the same time.
- The ancient greeks referred to Raspberries as the Brambles of Mount Ida. Mount Ida in greek mythology is associated with all kinds births, adoptions, and sex. It is also a place where nymphs and goddesses hung out on a regular basis. It is thought that this mountain is associated with female deities because it was an early pagan place of worship for an Earth Mother figure.
