    I have a tree in the backyard....we thought it was a kind of oak - kind of has leaves in that general shape....but I was just back there - adn there are berries all over the place....look kind of like rasberries or blackberries.....that "cluster" of little mini-berries... the not-ripe ones are white, the n they shade to red and the ones on the ground are black - and the most tender ones on the tree are black too...


    Any clue what I may have here.....is it edible?? I tasted one - and it was rather sweet.

    I'd guess that the tree is about 5-10 years old. I'ts a volunteer out by the shed. nothing like it at all that I have ever seen in teh neighborhood.....

    Guesses???

    Very good to eat.

    I agree it is probably a mulberry. Our berries never have a chance to get black (ripe) as the birds get them first.
