[nafex] Cornelian Cherry

Hello Group
I have what I think is a Cornelian Cherry or it may be an ealiagnus? 
of some sort. I  was told it was a "cherry tree" and have seen and 
eaten some fruit. The fruit was oblong , about 3/4" long , red with 
flecks on it. Very tart. The mother tree is a large shrub about 10' 
tall. I was given what appears to be a seedling plant from under the 
mother. The mother has dull green leaves, kinda silvery underneath. 
Can anyone point me to a site with some info on cornelian cherries so 
I can determine what I have or give me a description of a cornelian 
cherry or tell me what the heck this is?
I am in zone 8b, about 50 miles north of New Orleans on the acidic 
soils of St. Tammany Parish, La.
Thanks, Pete Benfield/NAFEX member
