hi these are growing on my SIL's land in amongst the b;ackberries, are they red currants? the pale insipid leaves are the ones that belong to the red berries, thank you

red currants are over
I can't see the leaf shape well but might be Tamus communis, Black Bryony or similar climbing berry producer.
Not Bryonia dioica, (White Briony) or Solanum dulcamara, a nightshade
I agree, the berry clusters are typical of black briony although it would be nice to see a full leaf (which are heart shaped.)
the only leaves we could see were the two mangy ones in the 1st two pics that are pale yellow and attatched to the purply vine stem, the rest were all brown
By the glossiness, black bryony.
thank you all, i have passed on this info and she will not now be serving it up for xmas dinner lol
