in kindergarten i told a boy who had a crush on me (but i hated) to taste these. nope, i had no idea what they were. yep, he did eat them. luckily he didn’t die a HORRIBLE POISONOUS DEATH, but he did get in a lot of trouble. me: 1 boys: 0.
now i know that these are japanese wineberries, and they are, in fact, edible. very similar to red raspberries but a bit more tart.
