Harvest time depends on variety. June bearers produce a heavy crop of berries from June through early July. Everbearing raspberries produce two crops, once in June and once again in the fall (September through the first frost).

Raspberries are used fresh, frozen, canned in syrup, jam, juices, and components of baked goods.
For optimum flavor, harvest berries when they are fully ripe just as fruit develops characteristic red color and aroma. During the fruiting season, you'll want to watch your raspberries closely as fruits tend to ripen rapidly. As the summer days grow hotter and hotter you'll want to harvest daily or every other day. As ripe fruit is pulled from the canes, it leaves the white center portion, the receptacle, behind. After the raspberries are picked they'll need to be stored properly right away as the fruits have a short shelf life even in cool conditions.
During raspberry picking, remove damaged or rotted berries from the patch.
