    Hello!

    At the back of my house (in Cardiff) I found a bush growing these lovely looking Blue berries, i don't think they are actually blue berries but was hoping someone could help me identify them and let me know if they are edible?42044738_1755828387849710_906610365746380800_n.jpg42122724_273523056817549_1159907994763264000_n.jpg41971045_503056100173552_7154446398715330560_n.jpg42122724_273523056817549_1159907994763264000_n.jpg

    They are very round in shape and all seem to grow in bunches and the leaves are quite large and jaggy.

    Thanks in advance for all of your help!

      Hi @workatron and Welcome to GC.. To me they look like a red wine grape, but there are so many different ones I have no idea which one it could be, butI am sure someone else will be along soon and have a look.. :SUNsmile:

          Before I saw the answers I thought they were grapes and laughed at myself for potentially eating poisonous berries if I was there =p

          Edit: They look lovely though are they easy to grow?
