Trees with red berries on them include are the holly and the coffee tree. The holly is grown both for its red berries, which appear in the fall and winter, as well as for its glossy, dark green foliage.

Both evergreen and deciduous types of hollies exist, as well as shrubs and creepers. Hollies grow best in full sun to light shade and in soil that is well-drained but moist.

The red berry of the coffee tree is used to make coffee. These small trees grow to about 12 feet tall and are native to the tropics of Africa and Asia.
