Cornus mas

The Cornelian cherry, Cornus mas is casting a yellow glow throughout the Gilbert Carter woodland.
A native of Europe and south west Asia, this deciduous shrub produces early spring umbels of flower. These are followed in autumn by a red fruit, or drupe, which has a sharp flavour. The fruits are edible and are used to produce preserves and syrups, and also to infuse vodka. The wood is tough and durable and has been used in the production of spears and tool handles.
