GOOD TO SEE, NOT SO GOOD TO EAT

One day, a neighbor gave us these stuff…

The Japanese name is gumi… (English name: cherry elaeagnus)

They are the size of large grapes, hence the name, bikkuri gumi (literally, ‘Surprised cherry’)

They looked very delicious, but looks do tell lies…

The taste was sweet and sourish, but most of all, sappy…

In other words, not too good to eat…

As they say, ‘for your eyes only’…

By the way, I had previously bought a seedling of the bikkuri gumi

Guess I shall reserve the fruits for the birds…
