The mutant

multipartite raspberry

Our neighbours gave us a few raspberry canes, and they’ve been producing raspberries (yay!). But the astonishing thing is how often they seem to produce raspberries like this: a single stem, with a (in this case pulled out) core (I’ve no idea what the cores are properly called) split into three, producing a Really Big Raspberry. I wonder what causes this?
