This tree is down the street a bit on the riverbank here in central NC. Any idea what it is?
Hackberry - Celtis occidentalis
hackberry.....the fruits are edible and taste like dates
I believe its a sugarberry. I have a few on my property here in NC. Hackberry and sugarberry look alike, I believe sugarberry is more native to central NC than hackberry.
Thanks, that makes sense. Next time we are down there I am going to look to see if there is any mistletoe in it.
