And I’d like some help, here …

06 Nov

I just took these a couple of days ago, and I don't have the faintest idea of what this little "fruit" is. The scale may not be apparent, so I must say that they are about ¼ inch (5 mm) in diameter … quite small. I say this because of the resemblance of the tree bark to cherry, but these are 'way too small, and it's November … long past the time when a cherry would be this size. The whole tree is about 10 feet tall … but I have no idea of its state of maturity … this might be its full-grown size, or it might get a lot bigger.

Any identification of these little things will be greatly appreciated … this is one of theose things that really bug me.

Pretty little things, whatever they are.

    I don't have any idea about what it is, unfortunately. :(But they look delicious – did you taste them?

    Oh, no of course not. (:doh: @ myself)Do you know if they contain a stone, like cherries do?

    Nope … they reminded me too much of barberry … I tasted them when I was a kid. I don't taste stuff that I don't know what it is.

    Do NOT eat them. They look like what we called China Berries. Several trees were removed around the school I went to as a child. I don't know if that is the correct name of them or not but everyone said they were poisonous.

    No, I don't … I didn't think of it until now.

    November 6, 2009 at 2:11 pm about in the middle of the Wiki article is a picture of the golden berries which look similar to yours. You can click on it once to enlarge it.

    Well, it said they are toxic if eaten in large quantities but I wouldn't take any chances with even one. I mainly remember the boys throwing the berries at us girls and the teachers yelling at them.They ARE beautiful in your photos.

    Wow! I wasn't about to try them, but even so, I'm bloody glad I didn't!

    Edible or not they make a lovely display. I wonder if they are too toxic to have in the house as part of a flower arrangement?

    I wouldn't want any toxic berries in my house on display. I wouldn't even allow them to grow in my yard.

    Very beautiful berries and pictures. I went through my books to see if I could find it, but no result. 🙂 🙂
