hi while I was picking wild blackberries today I noticed some bushes covered in these hard red/yellowish white "berries" I took pics of both the front and underside of the plant for you to look at. They are growing on large bushes along the road just curious if they are usuable for anything? Thanks for your time!!

Highbush cranberry - Viburnum trilobum. It's edible, a bit medicinal and definitely beautiful!

The berries are edible and have a bitter taste, but not too bad.
