    I have Joan J rasperries in their second year so this is the first year with a lot of fruit to pick. The problem is when leaving the fruit to ripen to a dark red, half of them have bits of mould or black bits and don’t look good to eat. I suspect this is due to all the wet weather we’ve had. Of the rest, a lot of them have small white specks inside the fruit although otherwise look good to eat – I’ve not seen that on shop bought raspberries. Are these ok?

    I have noticed what looks like cabbage white fly flying around.

    Can you advise? Also,am I just better off picking the raspberries under ripe just to save more of them from being not usable?

    I still have a lot of green fruit so hopefully a lot more raspberries to come if i can avoid them spoiling!

     I like Joan J, expect the quality will improve now the weather is settling down, I would let them ripen properly. Am unsure about the white specks but doubt they are any problem excpept visual, must be good to eat.
    As for the flies, I have no idea what cabbage root fly look like!
