To me these berries are somewhat of a disappointment. They tend to be rather mealy and tasteless. Having said that the flowers and the berries are quite showy. The berries are very high in vitamin C. The leaves can be used to make a tea but anyone who has had the need knows the leaves make a good “natural” toilet paper... big soft fuzzy leaves and no prickles!
