The raspberry tree is native to Asia Minor (roughly present-day Turkey, for simplicity).
This shrub, 1 to 1.5 m high, has been cultivated at least since the 4th century after Christ, with the Romans starting cultivation and then being succeeded by different peoples, who continued to value this plant in the image of the English. who exported this plant especially to the American colonies (region currently occupied by the United States).

Comments

– The relaxing effect of raspberry leaves on the uterus was described in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet, as early as 1941. Other research published later showed, at least in relation to some, a favorable effect of this plant in the period of childbirth, in particular in the labor of childbirth. These effects were often mild but significant.
According to scientific research, the leaves of the raspberry tree do not cause premature babies, as was sometimes supposed. In other words, according to the latest studies, raspberry leaves have no side effects.

– In Brazil, the cultivation of raspberry (raspberry tree) began in the 1950s, in Campos do Jordão (SP).
