What plant is this?

Please could you let me know what plant this is and whether it bears fruit or not?

    agreed, those berries are the fruit. cool plant and easy to grow from cuttings.

    does look like Schefflera arboricola,dwarf umbrella tree, which is becoming invasive in Durban according to Pooley’s Tree Book by Richard Boon. So dont start growing it from cuttings please!
