If it didn't kill the worm it's unlikely to hurt you.  Me being me, I would omit the washing bit.  Washing only washes away flavour; you are going to cook the fruit after all.

In my opinion it is all down to variety, because home-grown tomatoes usually beat supermarket tomatoes hands down.

If it flowers in spring remember not to bring it into the house as it smells of cat piss!

In my opinion there are better things to make jelly out of.  It really needs to be mixed with apple as rowan berries are rather short on pectin.

Mine survive the winter in the soil, I don't bother to dig them up, but you may be in a cold area.

Huh, you won't find gardening calming if you plant a Russian Vine.  It will be in your nightmares as well as your garden.

I have always found them outside the fruit.  Examine the plants carefully and you will see evidence of their droppings.  You may only find one caterpillar; it will be very well camoflaged and quite large.

Squidge it/them or throw it out for the birds.

Ooooooooooo Errrrrrr. Don't you know elderberry trees are associated with witches? I hope you said a good luck spell before you cut it down.

Though on the other hand they are said to attract lightening so you should be OK.
