What is this?


I have searched the Internet for plums, cherries and fruits but I can not find this plant. Does anyone know what it is and are the berries poison?

That's a surinam cherry. They're pretty common in this area. Very good to eat, high in vitamin C. Pretty tart until they turn dark red, then they're nice and sweet.

Finally, someone who knows what it is. Thank you so much.

We had a surinam hedge at our house at my childhood home in St.Petersburg. My three brothers and I ate them and used them as ammo. We're all middle aged and still alive.
