I'll snap a photo soon for example, but I believe I have a few barberry plants (currently fruiting) on my property. If it turns out to be barberry, are the fruits edible? Poisonous? I've seen some conflicting things online, but am not sure who to trust.

Photo soon to follow, but for a description: small leafs, long needle-like thorns, and bright red berries.

from what i’ve seen, fruits (and seeds) are edible. all other parts of the plant are poisonous.

Welcome to permies Rachelle. For berries go here. Then click the new topic button.

Similar procedure for plants or any other forum.

I'm going to make this reply & your question disappear some time in the future since it is off topic.
