Is this a berry?

Need help identifying this tree that's grown on an empty lot across my house. Not really sure if it's a berry (though it looks like one to me lol). The fruits are red like in the picture, but some are of a purplish black color. Been seeing some elderly picking them in the morning tho. Simply put, I wanna know if they're edibel lolol.

Pin Cherry harvest. Can I eat them?

All the online sources say that pin cherries are edible, but they are sooo sour even when fully ripe.

What’s happening here

Would love some input as to what’s happening to the blueberries on this bush and what I need to do for the health of the overall bush.

Blackberries

I planted a thornless blackberry last year and it grew 2 canes that are currently flowering. However, no new canes have emerged this year. Shouldn't the new canes have emerged by now?

Diseased or just sad?

I have a few blackberry plants, and all of them are doing well, except for this yellowing one(triple crown). Do I need to remove it so it doesn’t infect the other ones? Or is it simply just stressed? The established greener plants are black satin raspberries, and I just planted this stressed one about 1.5 weeks ago.

Woodland Strawberries getting tan and crispy edges

My woodland strawberry plants have been growing relatively well, but every time a new leaf comes up, another gets tan and crispy edges. One of them even has all 3 leaves crisping up, with a new one coming up.

Zone 7B. There have been several days now where the highest temp peaks at just over 100˚ Fahrenheit. The plants also have a fungus gnat problem, which I’m going to get Nematodes for. They’re only around 4-5 inches tall, and are in partial shade at the moment. What can I do to help them grow more? I started them from seed in late November/Early December last year. I’m willing to bet it’s a combination of the gnats and the heat, so could bringing them indoors help out some? What are some things I can do to take care of the gnats before I can get the Nematodes or possibly Mosquito Bits?

What are these?

These are scattered all over my backyard on the ground. They kinda look like strawberries but I know they are not, way too small and not on a plant with other berries.

Is this a blackberry?

My neighbor has a tree that grows these berries, looks similar to the blackberries I got from bushes as a kid. Are these safe to eat? (Can take pics of tree etc if needed)

Rasberry bush

So my wife recently got into gardening. So we went out and bought a couple berry bushes but her raspberry one isn’t looking so good. Any tips how we can bring this bad gal back from this. We live in a hot part of northern Texas. Thanks!!

What are these berries?

Found in NC while picking dewberries. The leaves are king of fuzzy, berries are slightly smaller than blueberries. I was hoping they were something edible but some quick google searching makes me think they are possibly toxic honeysuckle. Can anyone confirm?

A tiddlywink of black raspberries

There were a lot more at the local park, but they were farther back in the brush, I wasn’t wearing proper shoes, and I live in the Tick State™️ (Pennsylvania) so I couldn’t yoink any more. The rest were unripe.

Hoping to get some more, as well as some wild blackberries, dewberries, and wineberries down in North Carolina. Speaking of, has anyone in North Carolina found any berries that are ripening/will be ripe pretty soon? I’ll be heading down there and will be there around Saturday to visit family for the Summer (Coming back in August), and I want to know if any of the above (Or woodland strawberries) will be ripe whilst I’m down there. I’d like to pick some and enjoy the nature.

Red Raspberry patch issue

So when we moved in we had a red raspberry patch that was about 30 feet wide by 75 feet long. HUGE patch. In the summer we'd regularly get 1-2 gallons per day for a week or two while they were in peak production.

I did the dumb thing and listened to my dad, because the old dead canes were a LOT to keep up with. so rather than handling removing what i could, or even just leaving the dead non-fruit producing canes, i mowed the entire patch one year. I knew i'd be at least 1 year behind on growth, because 2nd year canes give the best amount of berries, but to remove all the dead growth i thought it was worth it.

boy was i wrong, weeds moved into the space like crazy. before there was very little grass, burdock, creeper vines, etc. Now they're EVERYWHERE. and the patch has drastically reduced in size and production. pretty devestating.

so i think i know my only option is to physically remove weeds, pull grass and other weeds up by the roots. but i was wondering if anyone else had an insight as to how to move forward. i just want my old patch back, we're lucky to get 1/4th the production now, and getting in between all the weeds is a pain to even get those.

what are these grey-ish spots on my raspberries

I don’t think they resemble the google images of mold or white druplets that I saw. Are they at least probably ok to eat? thank you
