Can anyone out there tell me what the name of this plant is? It grew green berries this spring and they are now red.

Thanks!

Looks like an Amorphophallus.

Voodoo Lily (Amorphophallus konjac)

Thanks Dave! Looks like that's what it is. Been wondering for awhile now.

I'm not convinced that that is correct.
Even our own ATP data base doesn't match. Look at the stem color pattern and leaflet arrangement.

Compare Arisaema dracontium
Greendragon (Arisaema dracontium)

If you remember what the flower looked like this past spring, it is a dead give away, also. They are completely different, and one has a terrible odor, while the other has no smell.

Welcome to ATP quickdraw.

I tend to agree with Rick on the Arisaema, but not sure which one. Perhaps a look at this link may be helpful in saying for sure.
