What’s that string of bright red, waxy berries in the hedge?

with No Comments
The hedgerows in Cornwall are full of different fruits at this time of year. The strings of bright red, wet-looking berries are Black Bryony. The berries are very noticeable, unlike the small, insignificant flowers seen earlier in the year in our Black Bryony on the South West Coast Path post.

Our Bittersweet or Woody Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara) – fruit post shows another British native plant with red berries.

Insight into Black Bryony (Tamus communis): native and widespread throughout England and Wales, the whole plant, including the berries, is poisonous.
