Arbutus unedo L. (the shrub) is arbutus or strawberry tree, and its fruit is arbutus. Arbutus is a member of Ericaceae family, like heather, and is a typical Mediterranean shrub (maximum height 9 m, so in some cases it might be more a tree than a shrub). Anyway, the shrub can be found locally up to northwestern Ireland. Flowering occurs in October-November, and the fruit (a berry of ca. 2cm in diameter, first yellow but red when mature), although rather sour, is edible. It is locally used in Southern France to produce a liquor, but rarely eaten as fruit. There is also an arbutus on the flag of Madrid city.
