About one year ago, two older Russian ladies were picking spikey red berries on my college campus. They kindly told me the name of the berries in Russian, which I could not remember, and showed me how to tell which were ripe. They are squishy and almost meaty in taste. Now I know them as Tree Strawberries. I am delighted to learn that three of them line my daily path to the bus and they are currently ripe. I have a soft spot for personifying plants into anime girls, haha. Perhaps I should make a series.
