Mountain ash is a common tree in our country. In the 19th century a variety with edible fruit was found in Moravia, Czech Republic, it is called Edulis.

It bears deciduous, pinnate leaves composed of deep green leaflets, serrated at margins. They change to orange, red and yellow in autumn. Its flowers are creamy white corymbs in late spring. They are followed by fruit which is as loved with birds as with people. The fruit lacks the typical bitterness of common mountain ash and is ideal for preserves and is very refreshing canned as stewed fruit. It should be harvested when fully mature from end September until end October.

Mountain ash will grow almost everywhere. It likes well-drained, preferably acid soil. Pruning should be limited to avoid fungi infections. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
