Pocan, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

According to The History and Folklore of North American Wildflowers by Timothy Coffey "Pocan" was an earlier name of American Pokeweed (Phytolacca americana).

I liked the way the sun was making the stems of the fruit such a bright colour.

I am so tickled that you posted this because you have cleared up a puzzle that has been bugging me for about ten years. That is when this stuff showed up on our farm and I have wondered what it was. Thanks
