DD says she ate some berries. Not sure what they are or how many she ate. Where can I find info with pictures. They're really dark with a very light green almost white on one end...

nope, not a poke berry. It came from a very tall tree, and we live in Florida.

it's a camphor tree.<br><br>
I didn't want to call poison control without knowing what it was cuz they'd send an ambulance and dd seems really fine. but believe me, I'd be all over the 911/poison controll if she was vomiting or anything

So the berries weren't poisonous?<br><br>
Mama Poot - I'm in OH too. One time my DH came in and said he found a bunch of elderberries in the yard and was going to make jam from them. They were poke berries. (Our neighbors have a ton of pokeweed and I've pointed it out to him and told him it's poisonous but apparently he wasn't listening.) That would have been some jam!
