The Q&A Archives: White Spots On Red Raspberry Fruit

Question: Some of the fruit on my red raspberry plants have white spots on them. The spots don't look like mold, they look like the red sections of the berry, only white in color. what is wrong?

Answer: It happens sometimes that otherwise healthy raspberries contain white drupelets. These white drupelets appear individually or in clusters on the berry. The cause is excessive sun or heat during fruit formation. Because bleached drupelets have an environmental cause, control is neither practical nor necessary. Affected berries pose no threat to the health of the planting.
