Could anyone ID this fruit/veg plant please?

We crafters enjoy a bit of gardening...so anything to do with the garden goes here!

I think you can have elder bushes (easier to manage than a tree) from which you can make elderflower wine, and from the berries elderberry juice (obviously not from the same bush the same year! :wink: ) Elderflower wine is slightly sparkling and very nice as a summer drink.

Elder bushes/trees are the same thing. The difference is the size. I'd get rid of it Calv, they spread like mad.
