What is the name of a dark purple fruit that grows on a tree?
I want to know the proper name of a purple fruit that grows on a tree. When I was a little kid all the other kids would pick them from the tree and eat them. They would also be a bunch of them on the ground as they had fallen. Every one called them 'Monkey *****' but I know that is not the real name. They look and shape exactly like purple egg plants but smaller I'd say about 2 inches long. They taste sweet but bitter at the same time if that make any sense. Do you know the name of this fruit? Thank you!
my guess is that they may be brambles if not what about blueberries, hope this helps you.
i remember eating them myself when i was growing up.

Maybe figs, or plums?
