Cornus mas (Cornelian cherry, European cornel or Dogwood), (Armenian: հոն hon, Persian: زغال اخته, Turkish: Kızılcık, Azerbaijani: Zoğal， Chinese: 山茱萸, Romanian: Corn ) is a species of flowering plant in the dogwood family Cornaceae, native to southern Europe, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Iran and southwest Asia.
It is a medium to large deciduous shrub or small tree growing to 5–12 m tall, with dark brown branches and greenish twigs. The leaves are opposite, 4–10 cm long and 2–4 cm broad, with an ovate to oblong shape and an entire margin. The flowers are small (5–10 mm diameter), with four yellow petals, produced in clusters of 10–25 together in the late winter, well before the leaves appear. The fruit is an oblong red drupe 2 cm long and 1.5 cm in diameter, containing a single seed.
I know of only two species int the dogwood family that is edible so if it is some relative of cornus mas its poisonous.
I am also pretty sure that it not cornus mas or anything in the dogwood family.
It is mostly something from the prunus family. If possible post a few more pictures.
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
