Yes they do make a nice photo Jazzy. Maybe they get sweeter as the season goes on.

thank you all for stopping by.
we call them 'trnjine', they're always sour and they even dry your mouth, these are ripe fruits.

They look like sloes. In UK they're macerated in gin to make sloe gin, in Navarra in Spain they make patxaran by macerating sloes in anisette. Do you do anything alcoholic with them?

I find this:"The sloe (prunus spinosa) is the wild tiny plum from Europe, very acid and with only a couple of mm of flesh around the seed...". I so picture, and yes, sloe is "trnjina". I like this fruits!

These are sloe berries or endrinas. Can't get any sloes here in Florida so I put Anisette or Sambuca over frozen blueberries and let them sit for a while and get a drink very similar to the Spanish Pacharan.....smooth with good kick.
