Yesterday afternoon as I was cleaning up after the hounds in the far corner of the yard, I looked up and noticed a tree growing in the easement behind the house that appeared to be growing berries. It appears to be roughly 15′-20′ tall, rooted in very wet clay soil near where the storm drain dumps into a seasonal wash.
It was tall with immature red fruit and dark blackberry-shaped berries.
Any idea on what this is, and whether or not these are edible? This particular tree is dead center in the middle of a nasty briar patch, but if this is an edible, I might see if I can find a sapling to transplant to a less inhospitable location.
