Despite the Maritimes only having 120 frost-free days in a year, they have significant fruit production. New Brunswick is home to a variety of different fruits, including raspberries. Raspberries provide more than half of the RDI for vitamin C, a water-soluble nutrient essential for immune function and iron absorption. Fruit and berry picking is a fun and affordable activity for friends and family that Moncton Cares wants newcomers to take part in.
