    I found some berry trees

    Should I pick some of their fruits? It's in a city, but by a place where not many people are around. I tasted one today and it was pretty good. Should I bother?

    I heartily recommend you pick any and all berries you find on any random trees or bushes. Please keep a camera nearby to document anything that may happen.

    My guess is that is a mulberry tree. Raspberries and blackberries grow on canes (more shrub-like). Mulberries are weed trees in this area (PA) but my horses run for the mulberry trees that are ripe when I let them into their pasture. As kids, we thought mulberries were great, but they are a bit sweet for my taste now.

    I would think it's mulberry too. Do they look like this?

    We have a lot of mulberry trees near my office and I had my fill of them a couple of weeks ago. But I've heard the green ones are hallucinogenic.

    Here's a tip I heard from hannahc, berries that are aggregates like blackberry, raspberry, mulberry in general are safe. It's the non-aggregate ones that you need to be careful about.

    I found a couple cherry trees on one of my walks. Only thing is the trees are growing in a graveyard and they overhang the sidewalk of a very busy street. I don't know how frowned upon that would be to be seen on the side of the road taking fruit from a graveyard tree. but, there's tons of ripe cherries, and no one is picking them and they taste so GOOD (I grab some as I walk by). So, I don't know. If there weren't so many people around I would definitely pick them all
    Good luck foraging tomorrow!
