sorryJW,

I have no idea what those are.. hopefully someone will be able to help you..

Alternatively you could take them to your local gardening shop and see if they have the answer?

Thanks Gonzo and i figured they were poisonous by the looks of them but then again until this year didnt know what elderberries looked like either and now I have a 6 gallon batch aging that smells like liquid gold and tomorrow Im taking a 5 hour ride to pick up 15 mature Black Currant bushes.

Those are salal. They are growing all over Pacific northwest and are used as an ornimental srub and in florial arangments. I figure if birds dont eat them I wont either. Its a good rule. Guess mthe Native Americans ate them

They are everywhere here and no body picks them or eats them. Not even Bears.

lol. we don't have eldeberries on our property, but we have seen them right off the road wild and full of berries! our concords get eaten well before ripe.

i've heard tart cherries will last on a tree, but my mother says that's not true, anyone have any?

cherry wine is great!
