Fruit small, 1-seeded drupes with flattened stones; ripe in autumn.
The Araliace are said to have fleshy fruits or drupes more or less succulent.
When ripe the fruit has a fine red color and the drupes fall from the head.
The drupes are small, black, and very bitter, with a wrinkled stone.
The flowers are lily-like, on the plan of three, and the fruits are clustered berries, or drupes.
The fruit consists of a collection of six or seven drupes; each contains from six to nine seeds, the vegetable ivory of commerce.
There are small furrows on the tops of the drupes, rather deep but not very distinct.
The drupes are bright orange red and are usually smaller than the purple fruit of hackberry.
The berry is composed of a compact and adhering cluster of drupes, each drupe about one thirty-second of an inch long.
The drupes ripen slowly and gradually; they are red in color when fully mature and possess a peculiar faint odor.
