The little red fruit, shaped like tiny pumpkins, follow quickly after the flowers. They are very rich in vitamin C and only take about three weeks to reach maturity. I love them fresh off the tree and graze on them as I pass by on my way out my back gate to the barnyard but jellies and juices can also be made from the fruit.
The birds love the fruit as well so I hope I'm not breeding a future weed problem.
