Q.Are Fuchsias Really Edible?
This article (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/fuchsia/eating-fuchsia-berries-flowers.htm/?print=1&loc=bot) says they are, but it includes this sentence: “Ominously still, others are actually toxic or poisonous and serious illness or death can result after ingestion.” Later in the article it says “Since we have established there is no fuchsia plant toxicity….” So which is correct? If all are edible, please correct the article!

"There are countless varieties of fruits, both wild and cultivated. Many of these are edible and actually delicious while others are not tasty but effective medicine or high in nutrients. Ominously still, others are actually toxic or poisonous and serious illness or death can result after ingestion. Are fuchsias edible? This is a valid question, as the deeply purple berries appear to be some sort of juicy, tangy, sweet delicacy."
I assume you are referring to this paragraph, which when read fully, is talking about all fruit, in general. It means that some fruit on this planet are toxic, but the next sentence asks if Fuchsia is toxic, and the answer to that is, no. It is not toxic.
