Berry of the Cornus Kousa Tree

This is a close-up picture of the berry of the Cornus Kousa Tree. The whole tree was just laden with these deliciously looking berries, most of them still green. Looking at this specimen, I assume that they turn red when ripe, so I am hoping to return to the park and pick some more fruits in a few days time. The Tree Advice Trust have assisted me a second time in identifying a foreign type of tree and I am very grateful to them. The Cornus Kousa Tree seems to be very well adapted to this region, considering is has it's origin in Asia, foremostly Japan, if Wikipedia is to be believed, and is also known as Japanese Flowering Dogwood ( Yamaboushi).
