Sorbus aucuparia

Description Edit

The fruit of the mountain ash, called rowan berries in culinary usage, are usually very bitter and inedible fresh, but are used to make jam or jelly, with a distinctive bitter flavour. Rowan jelly is a traditional accompaniment to game and venison. The cultivar 'Edulis' has been selected for its less bitter fruit.
