How unusual are these... they look really fruity and juicy.

Soumen and Doris, they look tempting, but they are far from edible, rather poisonous! We stayed in Fontainebleau to take care for the dogs of our daughter and these juicy berries attracted the attention of the dogs. So we were always on the alert to keep them away of them!
