Myrkyllinen..

Oh, Mirkwood in The Lord of the Rings. Mirkwood is a dark forest with large poisonous spiders!

Could the berry also not be honest? :p

All red berries I have ever encountered have been honest: not once has any of them ever told me a lie.

Should toxic also work for myrkyllinen?

If it is ok in English that a berry or fruit is toxic, then yes. We only have one word in Finnish. What do native English speakers say?
