The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who sadly passed away on 31st July 2011. She will be greatly missed.

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies is now available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint on mkf1000@medschl.cam.ac.uk. Currently, the cost is 12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.


vadelma (today's sample record)

Plural: vadelmat/vadelmia

Language: Finnish

Description: Raspberry. Two types of most commercially grown kinds of raspberry are available, the summer-bearing wild type that produces an abundance of fruit on second-year canes (floricanes) within a relatively short period in mid-summer, and double- or "ever"-bearing plants, which also bear some fruit on first-year canes (primocanes) in the late summer and fall, as well as the summer crop on second-year canes. They can be invasive if not kept in check. I love these fruits, which are hollow when picked, and consist of masses of drupelets.
