‘Elegant’ Cornelian Cherry

Cornus mas 20-25' x 15-20' Bred by Svetlana Klimenko, a Ukranian botanist at the Central Botanic Garden in Kiev.

Selected for good fresh-eating flavor. Ripens around the third week of August in Maine. Picking window lasts between two and three weeks.

Fruits are about 1¼" long with a very slender elongated shape. Soft flesh is tricky to pit so best eaten out of hand.
