Flgarden:
Please help identifying those berries. They grow in Orlando fl, at  college campus. Are they edible? Honeyberry? I have never seen anything productive like that without extra help.





Thank you,
Ana

Nick C:
Leaves look a lot glossier than the honeyberry plants I grow. Is it evergreen?

Francis_Eric:
Guess native Florida privet

I do not know just logged in for a minute.






Francis_Eric:
berries look the same

but keep in  mind when looking

are the leaves opposite of each other on branch
yours are (edit privet have opposite leaves as well)

I may go outside, and look at a privet . (to see if leaves are opposite or alternating )


By the way privet is in the olive family , but berries are said not to be edible
some privet that is not native is taking over in Southern IL.

Now I think In northern IL . our privet that is a ornamental is finally becoming invasive
(some seems to have fruited  once in 40 years
I have never saw berries form until a few years ago (and none since)
( but maybe fruited being weather related  that year)

Francis_Eric:
Simple question

what does the berry look like inside

Is the seed tiny (if not may be privet)


Honeysuckle family should have very tiny seeds
privet seeds should be larger .


I am no expert, but that is only a guess ...

You never know if the college would plant non native privet '
if so could spread over a entire area ...
