Elaeagnus multiflora 'Sweet Scarlet' | Sweet Scarlet™ Goumi
Goumi are highly prized in Europe and Asia for their attractive, fragrant, white flowers in spring, followed by edible, scarlet fruit in summer. Eaten fresh or as a jam, their taste is similar to pie cherries. Moderately tall, they tolerate poor soils and attract pollinators. Plant two varieties for best fruit production.
