|I have this plant in my garden. It is currently about 3 meters tall. It has sort of purplish leaves and it had whitish flowers in September in New Zealand. Currently it has purple berries which are about 1 cm in diameter. It might grow bigger. I just bought this property and this plant/tree looks like it is well established. Is it a useful plant? Can the berries be eaten. It is taking up prime sunny location in the yard.

Cut one of the fruits open and show us what's inside.

Your plant reminds me a bit of Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens)

|kittriana... jessy1 says in question New Zealand .
At 3m tall that rules out Gaultheria procumbens.
Would like to see a pic showing the whole plant.
It looks like Malus to me...a crab apple.
Try cutting one in half...round the equator. It should have a 5 pointed star in the middle...see link.
