    Hard to be sure from the pic but it looks more like a fungus than a berry. More likely in than position as well

    If they are berries-what happens when you squeeze them?

    Think I would be more inclined to tread them ! They look like grapes image Hope someone can answer your question- I'm intrigued now.

    I think you need to disect them. Have they got a seed in? Do they smell like mushrooms or grapes or something else altogether? Are they attached to those pieces of straw or cane (the straight bits). If so are they growing directly out of it or is there a stalk? 

    agree with Jean Riley, I'm intrigued.

    Could they be eggs of something? Snails have white eggs, but not quite like those.

    Busy Lizzie's suggestion makes me realise I have no idea of the scale. How big are they?

    A simple question is to ask is whether they are all on little stalks, which are growing out of the ground. If so, it's a fungus, and competely harmless.
