Some cultivars of fuchsias produce berries. These usually ripen to deep purple. Once they develop their full color, these berry-like fruits are edible. Typically, these are eaten fresh. They?re very juicy with a mild flavor. Fuchsia fruits are a great choice for adding to fruit bowls and the like. Be careful when serving these fruits, for they can easily stain tablecloths, napkins, and even plastic dishes and serving bowls.
