Red berries (arils) of the Japanese Yew.
Red berries of the Japanese Yew.
While I was walking near my father’s house in Hakodate city, Hokkaido in early October, I saw the pretty red berries of the Japanese Yew.
One of my good memories.
Those berries reminded me of the days I used to pick and eat them (except seeds) on my way home from elementary school.
Seeds are poisonous.
The red berries are edible and sweet. However, it wasn’t until I became an adult that I learned that the seeds are toxic and very poisonous. Please don’t eat them!
