Another unusual tree came to my attention, whilst on a stroll through the local park. Laden with fruit, the Cornus Kousa Tree, caught my eye for it's unusual berries. Wondering whether these would be edible, for they truly look delicious, I took a couple of pictures and a fruit sample home with me. After having contacted The Tree Advice Trust, who have very kindly assisted me in the identification of this species, I googled Wikipedia and found out that this tree is native to Asia and apparently the fruits are edible. They reminded me a bit of Lychee in their appearance but would probably taste very differently. I never cease to be amazed by the abundance of foreign and interesting trees we have growing right on our doorstep.
