    Yeah I'd be very weary with trying things if you're not absolutely sure what they are.

    Ameno, you're absolutely right - Solanum dulcamara is what is quite persistent in my back garden, but not a particularly fast grower and that is it in the picture.

    VC, no idea what countries my app covers and I suppose there will be quite big differences across the globe in what plants are 'normally' growing there. Sometimes it requires several pictures of a plant to identify what they are, that can be confirmed elsewhere.

    Hi everyone

    Thank you so much for your excellent feedback. To answer an earlier question, yes, they were all picked in the UK in August. I will steer clear of the top left ones given the consensus that they are from a weed but the others sounds like they would be safe to eat...much to my sonís delight

    Thanks again for your help everyone!

    We didn't actually say they would be "safe" to eat - that's up to you to decide. You need to see leaves, flowers and the plant itself before being sure - and then its not 100% from photos.

    For the record, sloe berries are disgusting to eat raw and dry your mouth.

    Thanks veggiechicken. I did edit my post but it posted my old one...just wanted to clarify that we would never consume anything until we are 100% sure but this has been a great learning exercise for my son.

    Thanks again all!
