Cincinnati Black Cap


Cincinnati Black Caps

In the the Cincinnati region, we're very proud of our famous seasonal treat. Since humans have inhabited the continent, we have foraged for native black raspberries that grow from the east coast to the Rocky Mountains. In southwest Ohio, the berries developed a distinctive taste when cultivated.

Unique Conditions

The distinctive taste of the Cincinnati Black Cap is derived from the combination of weather, water and soil uniquely found the Miami River Valley in southwest Ohio.

Culinary Experience

The Cincinnati Black Cap is used in everything from sweet desserts like ice cream, pies, doughnuts to preserves, jams, and beverages. Sweeter than blackberries and healthier than red raspberries, the Cincinnati Black Cap can be found in creations produced by the Cincinnati region's favorite restaurants, breweries, creameries, and bakeries.
