Found what I think is serviceberry right beside the patio we each lunch on at work.

the berries don't seem to darken to purple/blue (birds might eat them too fast)

But some were definitely a darkening red. a few little seeds inside.

I tried one and didn't die, cramps, vomit, etc.

can't for the life of me remember if it has the flowers and fall foliage. I eat next to it all the time.

any specific way to ID?

Saskatoon/Service berries are dark blue/purple. Got lots of them here in the parks, yummm.

It seems there are many varieties of service berry, and even what I call wild plums might be one! I can't positively identify yours though

If you search on Google images on 'serviceberry unripe' you get loads of pictures that very closely resemble yours.


It's a little chilly.

Talked to groundskeeper at the hospital and he confirmed its a Serviceberry. Told me there were 2 or 3 more around also.

Today there were a little darker. They definitely taste good at the dark red stage. I'll keep an eye on them and see how dark they get.

I keep checking the mulberry tree and they are all white. I need to go out to my land and see if there are any ripe ones
