    This is the beautiful, but invasive Mile-A-Minute Weed (Persicaria perfoliata - formerly Polygonum perfoliatum). Mile-a-minute is an annual, herbaceous, trailing vine that is part of the Buckwheat (Polygonaceae) family. It is also commonly known as Devil’s or Asiatic tearthumb. The vine can be identified by its alternating, pale-green triangular leaves and recurved hook-like barbs. When present, flowers are small and white, which produce a blue berry-like fruit that contains a single black or reddish-black hard seed called an achene. Seeds can germinate in the soil for up to six years. More information here: http://www.dnr.maryland.gov/forests/programapps/invasives/Forest%20Pests_mile_a_minuterev.pdf

    The description of the meetup gives this information.... it was a surprise harvest because they didn't think that the uncared for trees would produce fruit, but they did. The orchard is in Parkton. I'm sure the BOP team will be super happy that you will be participating in upcoming activities and harvests!
