Re: Fruit / Berry Identification
Those are the berries of Oplopanax horridus....... or Devil's Club (Devil's Walking Stick). Believe it or not, it's actually in the ginseng family.
I have also called it a few other choice names when I happened to grab one of the thorny boogers without looking.
Around here, when the berries are looking like that, it's only a matter of days til a bear has the tree broken over and the berries cleaned off.
