As an ornamental, Cornelian Cherry produces profuse, very early blooming, delicate yellow flowers followed by bright red or yellow fruit and yellow and red fall color. Cornelian Cherry fruit is good for fresh eating, preserves, juice, and wine. Cornelian Cherry is hardy to minus 30°F and two varieties are required for cross pollination and good crops.
