What is the difference between capers and caperberries?

Dennis Gottleib

Capers are the unopened buds of the caper bush that are pickled and often used as a seasoning or garnish. A caperberry is the fruit of the caper bush; it is generally found with the stem on and, like the caper, is pickled. Caperberries tend to be starchier and less piquant than capers, and are often served with cocktails the way you might serve olives.
