Cornelian Cherry

Uses: Fruit
Acquired: 2003
How started: Potted Plant
Source: Lake Forest Park Farmers Market

One of the first plants to bloom in the spring. A nice splash of color on grey days at the end of winter. This tree took a long time to fruit. I planted the tree in 2003 and got the first fruits in 2010, so 7 years for the first harvest. I had fruit from an older tree that I added to a mixed fruit wine that turned out well.
