Re: [nafex] fruit wine

Black Haw is one of the common names of Viburnum prunifolium, I believe.
It's very hardy, and is a common landscape plant in the midwest.  I remember
eating at a restuarant in Wisconsin and when I asked about fruit, they said
they were out.  On the other side of the glass from where I was sitting were
several V. prunifolium plants covered with fruit.
