Cornelian Cherry

Description
Adds Unique Floral Sweetness to Fruit Preserves
An easy-to-grow fruit tree that's a breeze to incorporate into the landscape. Growing just 15- to 25-ft. tall with a compact, branching habit, it has unique exfoliating bark and dark, glossy green foliage that turns purple-red in the fall. Its attractive yellow flowers bloom in the spring and its red, elongated fruits ripen in August. Tart, cherry-like fruit can be used in preserves, baking, juice and wine—as well as attracting birds and wildlife. Plant in partial shade, and plant 2 or more for better fruiting. Zones 4-8.
