No clue what these are called but they are lovely. Soft as rubber and 1,5cm in diameter.

Original is in note.

EDIT: It is a Korean/Chinese Dogwood called "Kousa Dogwood"

They are called "Kousa Dogwood" and they are also sold in US as decorative plants according to my research.

I have only seen it in one particular garden on one of my walks.

Based on the tip from neira I looked it up and it turns out to be a Korean/Chinese Dogwood called "Kousa Dogwood"

Fascinating shot Thomas. I love these trees in flower, but have never seen them fruiting until now. Apparently, they are edible too, but I wouldn't take my word for that! ;)

Thank you Paul :D

I read somewhere too that they are eatable but I am not taking my chances ;)
