My dad recently planted a tree in his yard, my niece won it at a school fair but lost the tag which explained the tree's name/species and how to tend to it. All she remembers was that they told her it was a tree and that apparently it would grow some type of berries on it?!! As of right now it's still very small, but my dad has managed to keep it alive and it's grown at least 2 feet in the last few months. It's in some direct sunlight but we don't know if this is sufficient. And depending on how big it's going to get, we may need to move it. I'm going to attach a picture in hopes someone could help us figure out what this darn thing is. Any help would be truly appreciated!!!

|Looks like a Thimbleberry to me. Yum-Yum! |

|I'm not familiar with thimbleberry, and I was thinking it looked like some kind of Ribes. Googling thimbleberry, the leaf lobes look more pointed than the ID plant, which is kind of rounded at the tips like at least some Ribes.|
