False Solomon’s Seal Berries aka Treacleberry

September 17th, 2010


Smilacena racemosa, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA

White flowers in late spring/early summer, berries in late summer. When the berries turn red they do taste kind of treacley–molassesy/woody/fruity, with a tart skin a bit like a concord grape skin in texture and a slick white seed.
