A very popular fruit in the Russian Far East, China and Japan, Goumi is now widely planted in many European and American gardens. Goumi forms a medium-size shrub growing to 6 ft. in height with attractive, silvery green foliage, profuse white flowers and juicy, aromatic, scarlet-red fruit. Ripening in July, the fruit tastes somewhat like Pie Cherry and is very good for fresh eating as well as for making tasty preserves. Goumi is self-fertile and hardy to minus 25°F.
