I’m a devoted wilderness backpacker and during the wild berry season berries are a regular part of my backpacking meals. In a wilderness survival situation berries are an excellent source of food.
Learn to recognize a few edible wild berries. Berries are delicious fresh.
If you don’t know what berries are edible avoid white and yellow berries, as most of them are poisonous to eat. Blue and black berries are probably edible.
There is no berry, at least not in North America, that looks like a blueberry and can hurt you from one taste. Take a taste, and just spit it out if it doesn't taste right.
