This vine is growing in Orlando, Florida. I assume that the berries are edible because it is growing in is a vegetable garden. Any ideas?? Thank you!

Looks like Malabar spinach?
It would the the leaves and fresh vines - when young that people eat.
I had this one last summer in the garden but my mom never cooked and it just grew,. and grew.

Malabar Spinach, Red Vine Spinach, Creeping Spinach, Climbing Spinach all equal Basella rubra.
You eat the young tips and leaves, NOT the berries. Tastes like a salty version of chard. Better raw than cooked IMHO.
