You'd like the Steve Brill book I mentioned in my post above.  He writes about urban foraging, and things to think about when doing it.

 

Forgive me for being such a plant nerd, but my brain will short circuit and implode if I don't mention this, rendering me incapable of continuing with my day-- Saskatoon berries (Juneberry/ Serviceberry/ Sarvisberry, etc.) Amelanchier sp. are members of the Rose family.

Thanks!  See, I know so little!  When you say that, the texture and flavor do make sense as being members of the rose family.
