Caper Spurge

Thanks for the ID. I have read some facts about it and found it produces latex which can be poisonous. It has now gone to the great garden in the sky.

Like you I found one in my garden. When I found it was called Caper Spurge I did think about pickling the fruits... until, also like you, I discovered that they are poisonous... warns "Ingestion of caper spurge buds can cause burning of the mouth, nausea, paleness, irregular pulse, dizziness, delirium and fainting"... and I'm not even that keen on normal capers!
