What kind of berries would this be? Found it under a pine tree leaking sap.
Looks like it could be a Mahonia species.
Mahonia nervosa, I believe (now Berberis nervosa)
When was photo taken?
two days ago
Leaflets quite like the native but is timing of fruits right?
There are similar fruiting plants in the Garden here now. Does this seem early?
4ager, I assume you like to find wild edibles. You might want to try this one. I only found out it was edible late last year. I sampled some. They are quite tart, but I found them very tasty. (Probably way too sour and strong for most people) They make good preserves or can be added to sweeter fruit. Loaded with vitamin C. I look forward to trying out some new jelly recipes when they ripen.
Then apparently it isn't early.
Thanks Eric, I will taste it once it ripens a bit. I am trying to learn survival tactics, in case I ever get lost in the woods somewhere. So, after watching some Youtube videos, I figured I better start learning what the plants are and which ones are edible. Starting at home is a great place to learn, and then go from there, as I tend to hike a lot.
How do you guys know all these names of plants??? Impressive.
