Expert Response

Dear gardener,

Since you did not provide your location, it is not possible to identify the plant. It is also important to know if this is a landscape plant or in the wild. Our writers are in the US and Canada, so our focus is primarily on plants from those areas.

It is unsafe to eat berries from unknown plants. I suggest you contact experts in your area that may be able to identify the plant.
