Sorbus Aria
This small tree, which we usually find isolated, at this point we have the privilege of seeing it grouped in a few specimens.
The leaves are ovate, of saw-shape margin and dark green color above and silvered below due to dense hairiness.
The whitebeam belongs to the rosacea family. It has a whitish flower of five petals. The feet ripen from September to October. They are edible but slightly rough. You must wait for the first frost before picking them up. With the pulp, jams are made, and by means of fermentation a type of vinegar can be obtained. In the past, the flour of the dried pulp was mixed with normal flour to make bread and cookies.
