I don't want to pick them and eat them and poison us!

Grapes I think

Ok great! They are very small. How do I tell if they are ready.

Yes they are, but they will be very acidic and be mostly skin.

We have a grape vine (I think we are a little further north because ours are still marbles!) we do get loads and loads of grapes, but they are not really edible, more decorative.
Every year I say 'oh, I will have a go at making jam with them' and every year I think 'nahhh, waste of time and sugar!'

Definitely grapes but definitely not suitable for eating.

We have several grape vines and eat/make wine from them each year.

Pick one and eat it. Then you will know whether it is worth making wine from it or not.

grapes that are still ripening

if sweet eat as they are or cook with them, if sour then they are for turning into drink

you can also eat the young leaves if you have the patience of a saint to make stuffed vine leaves

Only just saw the message saying not suitable for eating. Why?? And it's too late! We ate a bunch this morning and they were sweet and delicious! Are we going to die now???

Why would you think that? Sounds like a result to me.
