Cornelian Cherry is an interesting dogwood. These shrubs produce a ton of fruit for their size as you can see from the pictures. Grows best in full sun but like many dogwoods will do very well in partial shade makng it a good choice for edges. The game birds love this fruit and deer like to browse the branches. The Europeans are crazy about the fruit as they use it in many of their recipes in some of the best restaurants in Europe. We have made both wine and jam from our fruit and I have to admit it’s a “waiting to be discovered” fruit here in America.
