I'm writing a Java app to generate tries for Latex using TikZ.

I'm struggling to typeset a Trie to follow example below:

Could someone provide me with an example how to properly nest children nodes and corresponding labels.

What I got now is:

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node [circle] {}
    child{ node [circle] {} edge from parent node[above left] {$B$} }
    child{ node [circle] {} edge from parent node[above left] {$F$}
            child [circle] {}
        }; 
\end{tikzpicture}

But edge labels won't match to the right edges.

Actually, there are a number of questions with answers which label edges...

This might give you some ideas:

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\usepackage{forest}
\begin{document}
\begin{forest}
for tree={
  circle,
  black,
  draw,
  fill=blue!40,
}
  [{}
    [{}, edge label={node [midway, above left] {B}}
      [{}, edge label={node [midway, right] {A}}
        [{}, edge label={node [midway, right] {U}}
          [,phantom]
          [{}, edge label={node [midway, left] {E}}
            [{}, edge label={node [midway, left] {R}}, label=below:Bauer
            ]
            [,phantom]
          ]
          [{}, edge label={node [midway, right] {M}}, label=below:Baum
          ]
          [,phantom]
        ]
        [,phantom]
