Hi guys, spring has sprung at the new house, and you'll be seeing a lot of me! I did find out from the neighborhood we have a 50 year old wisteria. I had tried to ID it in the winter, and looks like I was right.

I found this pesky vine, and wondering if I should rip or keep

Thanks in advance!

Not poison. Just a type of ankle-biting fruit like blackberry, dewberry, or similar.

The stem/thorns look similar to dewberry...whatever it is called, you will get some edible fruit if the birds don't beat you to it.

Fruits start forming soon after the flowers. Some vines bloom on new canes, some on 2nd year canes. When you notice the flowers, start checking every few days. That said, these wild vines (an assumption, it could be a more desirable cultivar of some type) don't really produce enough fruit to dedicate space if ones' property is small/urban. And they spread underground & pop up anywhere/everywhere they want. Couldn't agree more about the berries being yummy though! Never picked a wild one that wasn't. For any uncultivated berries, just confirm they're an edible type once ripe if you're at all not sure.
