Plant / Berry Identification
« on: August 26, 2012, 06:34:25 PM »
Came across these plants at an old homestead that no one lives at any more. I have no clue as to what they are.
The pictures were taken yesterday.
All the berries were green except one orange and the plants were no more than 2 1/2 foot wide by 1 1/2 foot high. I think they look similar to the wild goose berries growing on my property but have much bigger fruit and smaller more dense foliage.
I was told I could take any plants off the property that I wanted, and was wondering if these were worth messing with. Any help would be appreciated.

It's definitely NOT gooseberry and doesn't look like anything I know (being from central MN). Where is this in the nation? It also looks herbaceous (not woody or shrub like).

I suspect it looks much like "Deadly Nightshade"
