Spops: The bit of staircase or slope on the wrong side of the bannister.

Spops are a small shrubby bush, with almost violently green leaves, with rich cherry-red, bell shaped fruits. The fruits taste varyingly sour or sweet, depending on if they’re picked when it’s overcast (sweet) or clear-skied (sour). Sometimes both the sweet and the sour berries are used in the making of fruit tarts, salads and syllabubs, for the delicate flavour that is the result of the mixing of the sweet and sour Spop fruit.
