Here are two kinds of red berries I often see growing in the wild, here in SE Michigan. Does anyone know what either might be? The first two are the same bush, the third is something different.
so Wikipedia says that these are both edible. The Viburnum tastes like cranberries, and is actually called "Cranberry Shrub", while the Elaeagnus tastes like rhubarb. I can't say that I would go out of my way to get either of these, but I wonder if anyone has actually eaten them? Made something from them? Viburnum jam?DoubleDogFarm wrote: Viburnum trilobum
highbush cranberry isn't that bad, by late winter when it's frozen, thawed and refrozen a couple times. but definitely not for fresh eating.DoubleDogFarm wrote:Highbush Cranberry or American cranberry are horrible, but the Sweet Goumi is very tasty.

Apple, I have no idea if this is the same tree as I'm showing in the photo above but it looks similar. I saw this is a neighbor's yard and was amazed at how beautiful it was. This photo was taken Sept 30 of this year.applestar wrote:Does Elaeagnus multiflora (sweet goumi) grow easily from seeds? Do they grow fast enough to be worth it (fruit within a couple of years) or is it better to buy the plants?
