Mystery Fruit

Pin It

I first saw this fruit on the New England seacoast a few weeks ago. Finding it intriguing, and completely clueless as to what it was, I took a photo, determined to look it up as soon as possible. Imagine my surprise, on arriving home, to find the exact same fruit (in photo above) on a tree growing in my garden! Had I looked at the entire tree, back there in New England, I could have figured out its identity. At any rate, now I know what it is. Do you?

I haven't got a clue, but it's a beautiful color! You must have an incredible garden, full of all sorts of flora and fauna,

Hello Anna Maria,
My garden is indeed diverse and rather "messy", which is both a blessing and a curse. This is the fruit of Cornus Kousa, or eastern Dogwood. I was so surprised to see them lined up on a branch of my dogwood tree. When I opened one of these fruits, it was a bit soggy and fibrous. I've yet to taste one, but will let you know how it is when I do.
Thanks for stopping by.
