Hi jolyn, Welcome!
I had American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) growing in our yard in Daytona Beach many years ago. I've never eaten the berries myself because an elderly neighbor told me they would cause an upset stomach. If I remember correctly it was always October before the berries ripened in our area but ripening may differ in other climates and conditions.

Here's an informative article written a few years ago by one of our members:
~ I'm an old gal who still loves playing in the dirt!
~ Playing in the dirt is my therapy ... and I'm in therapy a lot!
