Does anyone know the proper name for a plant sold as "Red Berry"?

I understand this plant is sold in the Fraser Valley of BC and also in the Okanagen Valley.
Here is a look at the seed and the kernel. I received some seed and am planning to plant but I am in Zone 3 so would like to know if I need to grow it inside in the real cold.

Very difficult to identify from seed, unless someone has direct experience. And "red berry" is not a common name I'm familiar with, either. Sorry.
Please consider giving to UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research, to support its mission of excellence in plant research, education and conservation.
