The Coolest Tree EVER! growing in front of my building. It bears fruit that is polka-dotted! The fruit looks sort of like a cherry, but with just a hint of spikes. Yesterday I was curious, so I threw one to the ground to see just how tough the exterior was. Not very. Inside was a small pit surrounded by what looked like lemon custard. Apparently it's edible, though I'm not ready to try it myself. In the spring this tree gets white blossoms all over it. I looked it up, and it's called a Kousa Dogwood.

  1. I read your blog this morning and saw two trees with that fruit on our daily evening walk. Thanks for looking up the name!
