Fire Thorn

Fire Thorn (#12)

Native to southern Europe and western Asia, this tree has small, white ?owers and produces small, bright, red berries.  The fruit is bitter and astringent, making it inedible when raw, but can be cooked to make jellies, jams, sauces, and marmalade. Since the 1700s A.D. in England, the tree was used to cover unsightly walls.
