What is a Cornelian Cherry? Here is a catalog description:
“A unique and attractive form of Dogwood, Cornelian Cherry is native to Ukraine and other regions around the Black Sea. Growing as a shrub or small tree, it is valued for its tasty fruit and for its ornamental value. Depending on the variety, Cornelian Cherry fruit can taste like a Cherry or a wild plum. It is very high in Vitamin C and is good for fresh eating, preserves, juice, and wine.” – One Green World
