Fun fact: Each raspberry consists of around 100 individual tiny fruits, called drupelets, filled with one seed. They are arranged in a shape of a helmet around centrally positioned small stem. When ripe raspberries are harvested from the plant, stem remains on the mother plant, leaving the hole in the middle of the fruit.
