Bahama wild coffee, Psychotria ligustrifolia

Don't go wild for Bahama wild coffee. The berries are edible and the seeds can be used like coffee. But the pulp is at best bland, and the coffee bitter and with very little caffein. This is a native shrub or small tree in FL and on the nearest islands. Lake Co FL, 10/20/15. Madder family, Rubiaceae.
