The cornel cherry, also known as Dirndl, Herlitze or Dürlitze, is not actually a cherry, but belongs to the cornel group of plants. However, they are called cherries due to their similarity with cherries. Cornel cherries grow on shrubs and small trees. The shrubs can live as long as 100 years. They have been cultivated for centuries in the warmer European countries, in very small quantities.
