Irish Strawberry Tree ( Arbutus unedo )
These appear to grow and proliferate very well all over the Cashmere hills of Christchurch.
I used to eat them as a child .. not quite as nice now !

Those grow where I live, too, and I also loved eating them as a child. I should try them again some time .....

Thank you fhelsing .. I did read that they were slightly toxic but they didn't harm us as children :)

Thank you Elsie ..
I think the name is more to do with the look of the berry. The taste is rather bland.
