Dear Hoolio Tamiano, I think Lopez is correct. I saw this plant only in USA, not even in Canada. Wait till October.

Sorry meant dose.

In eczema cases Phytolacca-30 works, that you can purchase from stores and also from this site. This is only for head eruptions not for the general eczema.

This thread is all very interesting. Gowing up in SE USA, every kid had to learn to not eat the poke berries. The entire plant is poisonous - in quantity - so I guess one berry wouldn't hurt anyone, but any part of the plant can be toxic if too much is ingested.

Elvis Presley sang a song called 'Poke Salad Annie' (first recorded by someone else), and I often heard about poke salad, and how the leaves had to be boiled twice to remove the poison. But I think poke salad is mostly from an earlier era in rural America.

But around my garden and other areas I don't always mow, I can have about as many poke plants as I choose, and they reach 6 feet or higher. Might read up on it more and see if I can make any use of it later this year when the berries are ripe.

I need to join this thread. For some reason, I think I'm going to become obsessed with this berries.

I think Kaldeep did say it was poisonous.

Will let him speak for himself though.

Pat, I saw this plant in Modesto residential area, just one plant. I am sure there would be more in the wilderness.

Can you post how to make home made remedies with the berries?

Now that I have tried one of your home made remedies, I am able to deal with reading about your braveness here. LOL

Hello Pat, I checked USDA site:

This plant occurs in all over California. In the beginign you can identify it only in Sepetmber when berries are ripe. A small plant can have thousands of seeds so if it is there, it must be in abundance.

You can extract juice of berries, it has low PH value so you can store it. I make tea of fresh or shade dried berries. You can also make Pie of the berries (some berries mixed with other furits)

Root (Rhizome) is a bit more poisonous. Whomever read this post and tried it, got rid of dandruff or scaly eruptions on the head.

Hello Kuldeep

I did find a post here where you indicate that you did bite into a plant and it made you sick.

What do you do when this happens? Do you have a remedy to antidote?

Takes a lot of guts to experiement.

Today I made a curry of phytolacca. Boiled the plant (without roots, roots are dangerous, then discarded the water and stir-fried it with spices. Tastier then any other green herb like spinich, medicago or mustard. Whoever ate it, asked for the recipe.
