how sad. that said, madrone fruit look rather like strawberries (hence the name "strawberry tree" because of all the red-colored fruits around this time of year) while the closely related manzanitas actually look like miniature apples (the name manzanita is Spanish for "little apples"). the seed inside the fruits look rather similar---small and roundish.
