Fact sheet

Growth: Plants with enormous vigor and a final height of around 250 cm; very well tolerated by pruning; pinching off the approx. 50 cm long new shoots ensures better branching and squat growth

Ripeness/Harvest: the fresh leaves are harvested during the vegetation period; the leaves can also be dried for the winter months

Fruits: our selection does not form flowers or hardly any flowers, since the actual purpose is with the leaves

Taste: the fresh leaves have an enormous sweetening power that is on par with stevia, but without the bitter notes in the aftertaste; the leaves retain their sweetening power even when dried

Variety description

Raspberry fruit can now be bought in grocery stores all year round and if there is no fresh fruit then in most cases there is frozen fruit. In addition, freeze-dried raspberries can also be found in one or the other muesli mixture. But who has ever heard that raspberry leaves can also be used? Raspberry leaves are mainly used as a tea or tea additive. And we also have a tea raspberry on offer, but less for therapeutic purposes and much more to sweeten the tea.
That's right, there is a raspberry whose leaves can be used to sweeten food. With us it has the appropriate name 'Sweetleaf®'. 'Sweetleaf®' is not a raspberry like the fruit-bearing raspberries but an independent Rubus species from Asia – Rubs chingii or R. chingii var suavissimus or just R. suavissimus – the botanists have not yet come to an agreement on this. We too are not sure if 'Sweetleaf®' is closer to blackberries or raspberries. This can be recognized most easily by looking at the fruit - raspberries detach from the cone, with blackberries the cone is also harvested. In theory it sounds easy, but our selection doesn't flower - it's also a tea raspberry, you don't need flowers - and therefore there are no fruits that we could use to determine the assignment.
'Sweetleaf®' is a plant with enormous vigor and can easily reach a height of 250 cm. By pinching the shoots at a height of 50 cm, 'Sweetleaf®' branches very well and the final height is also reduced.
Unlike other raspberries, only the leaves of 'Sweetleaf®' are used, both fresh and dried, primarily to sweeten drinks. So very similar to Stevia, with the big difference that 'Sweetleaf®' is hardy and hardy and can be planted out in the garden without hesitation.
