Is this Partridge Berry

I am getting mixed opinions on this. Anyone know for sure? Some say these are edible. Anyone ever try it?

Looks to me like what I've heard called wintergreen or teaberry. I've munched on a few over the years, edible but nothing special. Has a slightly minty quality but overall bland and dry.

The leaves look like partridge berry, but hard to tell with the pic of the berry. Best way to tell partridge berry is the blossom end of the fruit. You'll see the marks of two blossoms instead of 1 like all other fruits. Both flowers need to be pollinated for the fruit to form and grow.

Look at the berries on this web page to see what I'm trying to explain

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

I'm no expert by any means and it very well could be a teaberry but it sure doesn't look like any teaberries that I've ever eaten other than its a little red berry.
