    Looks like an early sprout of American Beauty Berry.

    I think we just don't notice the berries until they get to be a bigger clump. It'll get there.

    Looks like a "Leaverite" to me.

    You may be correct on the Lantana berry......

    It is not ABB. The leaf and berry structure is wrong. Here's an immature American Beauty Bush.

    I think Lantana may be correct.

    Lantana and Beauty Berry are related. Cousins according to Green Dean.

    Never eat anything you can't identify. Your taste and dot test might be necessary in an end-of-world scenario, but why, today, risk a trip to the ER.
    Lantana is, at best, not poisonous if fully ripe, but some experts say even ripe, enough of them could be lethal. Green and partially ripe berries are toxic.
