I do know that good old scrumpy comes from apples at that coates cums up from Somerset but a very old friend of mine, who used to always be out in the countryside walking old Roman roads would often tell me where he used to find loads of wild Goose berries along these routes.
Then where we learn that the Romans would thin out their vino ration with vinegar I do wonder did they also have a use for these little green berries.
