I have found a tree in our back pasture that I have been unable to identify. It is about 15-20 ft. tall and has clusters of small (grape size), green(turning red) berries(?) on it. These berries(?) have a large seed in them and the inside resembles that of a peach(yellowish orange). It is in the same area where my mustang grapes and wild plums grow. Any ideas would be great. Not sure where else to look.
Thanks!!!

Shucks, the only thing that come to mind is a China Berry tree.
What is stumping me is 'turning red'. Final Fall color is more Yellow.

Next time you run to town, take a sample with you and ask around. Don't try Wal-Mart. :roll:

China Berry is the first thing that occured to me as well. However, like Zipper I've only ever seen ones whose berries turn sort of an orange-gold colour. But that doesn't mean it's not some variety of the same tree.

Take a sample to North Haven Gardens, Shades of Green, or another reputable nursery.
