Wild grapes growing in my backyard, are they edible?
I would be super happy to know if I can/should eat these wild grapes growing wildly in my backyard. I don't know if someone else planted before I moved in or not, but it's a very aggressive plant. In fact, before I moved in, the landlord had thought he had destroyed it all, but shoots from the tree took off at the onset of summer and the plant has reached from one side of the yard to the other in the course of a few months. The grapes start green and have just recently started turning dark purple in the last few weeks. When I open the grapes, they smell like grape juice and I really want to eat them, but am afraid they might be poisonous. Your help identifying is greatly appreciated!
