The continuing saga of the berries!
Hi again, I have recently posted some pictures of a climber for identification as was asked about the flower colour, unfortunately I didn't know what colour the flowers were.
One of the green berries has turn purple, which when cut open produced quite a lot of purple liquid. I have attached some photos of the green and purple berries.
It was suggested that the plant was a solanum.
Hope this can confirm that.
Thanks again

I think it may be Solanum crispum and the berries are poisonous.

Thank you Jen,
I really don't like it at all, so it's made my mind up, I was dithering, but decision made, I'm going to remove it.
I have just got a really nice Honeysuckle and will plant this in it's place, much safer for the dog that may eat the berries if they drop!

I have not been a fan of them either, I think Honeysuckle much nicer.
