Seen on one of Pittsburgh’s bike trails, along the river. Are they edible?

    Mulberry. Yes, they are edible, but not very tasty.

    These appear to be black mulberries. I think they have a pleasant taste, and they make great jam and jelly – also wine. The problem is gathering them; the trees can get quite large, and often when the fruit falls to the ground, it “squshes”.

    Thanks folks – as a result of the responses, I found http://eatinglocalinpittsburgh.blogspot.com/2008/07/mulberries.html, which clinches it, I think. Thanks again.
