Features:

  • Refers to all fleshy fruits as "berries," whether they are drupes, pomes, accessory fruits, aggregates, or true berries.
  • Includes native species as well as some cultivated species that have escaped to the wild
  • Helps you identify plants with fleshy fruit 1 inch in diameter or smaller, found in Eastern North America.
