It's an odd one. Never seen anything like that. Where did you find it?

I found it along the Greenbelt highway which runs by the River It totally threw me cause I kept looking for the bush thinking maybe it had ran up the tree but the berries are part of the tree. My daughter, against my wishes, ate one and said it tasted just like blackberries.

Mulberry tree! Get 'em when they're black before the birds do. Don't park your car anywhere near it, the birds will make a mess you wont soon forget! We had a black and a white mulberry tree in our yard when I was a kid. Yep, finally found something I could comment on.

I can't really see it that good, the pic looks a little fuzzy or it could just be my reading glasses...lol... but it's definitely not blackberries. Is it just a little bush or is it a tree? I'll take a stab here and say it may be a Mulberry bush, I have a Mulberry tree in my back yard but it doesn't have berries yet.

You got that right, we had a mess in our back yard last year our tree was loaded with berries... this year it doesn't have one berry on it yet. It's a good thing we have a well in the back yard or our water bill would have been $500. as much as I had to wash the mess off the cars.

They are delicious if you don't mind fighting with the birds to get them..lol. The tree in our yard is an old tree it has been here for many years.I had to cut the top out last year because it was growing up into overhead power lines and it's still 20 feet or so tall.
