Discover the beautiful Celtis tournefortii, also known as the Oriental Hackberry. This deciduous tree is part of the Celtis genus and can grow up to 6 meters in height. Endemic to eastern Europe, western Asia, and the Caucasus region, it grows in plains and dry forests. With its polished green leaves and red and yellow fruits, it makes for an attractive addition to any street or park. It prefers well-drained loamy soil, is drought-resistant, and can grow in nutritionally poor soil. The fruit is edible and raw, and the tree is long-lived, with some trees reported to live up to 1000 years. Consider adding the Celtis tournefortii to your garden for a picturesque tree with fall foliage.
