Looks like yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria).

Yes I think you are right!
Thank you :)
Looks so delicious, is this edible?

Richmond, TX

Take note of the species name...

Don't listen to porkpal... if you're brave enough, almost anything is edible (at least once). They do look totes delish and could be used as a cranberry substitute for Thanksgiving.

/ disclaimer: of course one should not eat any Ilex spp. unless you are a bird ;)

Miami Beach, FL

Well that's the first scientific name that I won't forget !
Thanks guys :)
