Not so sure it is the weather, we had this problem last year and it certainly was not dry then. We have it again this year too. We thought it was perhaps the variety, but some of the same type produce the normal kind of berry. Does make picking them a lot harder.
Ours are only fed with compost so not artificial fertilsers have gone in. The plants themselves are good and healthy, no sign of any diseases or fungal infections.
The fruit tastes much like any Raspberry to me, but then I don't like them at the best of times. The Raspberry eater says they are ok.
