The picture is a little blurry and I don't feel comfortable identifying the berries under these conditions. Can you repost a better pic?
Thank you for your reply! I can try to get a better picture. What details do you most need to see to identify this plant? I am 90% sure that these berries turn blue when ripe. They look similar to some blueberry relatives that are pictured on Wikipedia, but the flowers of these are split into petals, whereas the blueberry relatives have more of a bell shaped flower. I am skeptical of these being a blueberry relative, because the soil here varies from a ph of 6.5 - 8.0.

Okay, here is another picture. I held a leaf up straight, so that you can get a better look at it. The picture also has a clearer view of the flowers. As you can see, these plants are putting on a lot of berries, considering the size of the plants. The berries are about the size of a small pea.
