I bought a wintergreen plant (Gaultheria procumbens) at a farmers market
last weekend.  The pinkish-red berries were the largest I have seen,
almost 3/4" diameter.  They looked like cherries hanging on the small
bush.  The guy selling them didn't know the berries were edible!  Are
wintergreen berries this size unusual?
