We have these shrubby vines that sprout up everywhere. I mow them down, but some of them have come up in places where I can't get to with the mower, so they have gotten quite large. (click on pic if you need to see a bigger image)
This is what the blossom looks like.
This is the mature fruit - small clusters with maybe four or five berries per cluster (just one on each of these, though because they've ripened and fell off or birds have gotten them). Of course, I tasted it even though Tom said he wasn't going to help me if I fell down gasping. It is very sweet.
This picture below is a different vine with fruit.
This vine is so entertwined with the muscadines and so far up in the trees, that I can't tell which is which, so I can't get a separate picture of the leaves. Honestly, it looks like it's growing on the same vine as the muscadines did and at first I thought it was a second generation of muscadines. But now that the fruit has matured, I've decided that it's a different vine altogether...or they are really stunted muscadines. They are tiny deep purple berries about the size of peas on a large cluster. I haven't tasted these because I can't reach them.
My first thought was the first bush was elderberry, but none of the leaves I found with a google search looked like my leaves. The last picture looks very much like the elderberry cluster, but because I can't see the leaves, I can't tell on that one either.
Anybody have any ideas?
