Please help me ID this tree. I have been trying to find it for a few years now and I don’t know what it is.

The tree looks like a dogwood right until the fruit start to swell, then one realized it isn’t a dogwood.

The fruit looks almost like Lychee, however that isn’t possible because these trees I have only found in Connecticut USA.

I have attached two pictures to help.

bunch of fruit truck and branches (and my dog)

You're right - the tree IS a dogwood, specifically, Cornus kousa. There are more details here.

  • Oh that’s so weird. All the dogwood I had ever seen previous had fruits that looked more like hawthorne or rose hip fruits. Thank you!
