Cornelian cherry naturally grows in the central and south-east Europe, as well as west Asian countries such as Turkey and Syria. Because of its fruit, the mankind has known about it since the Neolithic. It was especially revered by the ancient Greeks and Romans not just as a fruit, but because of its hard wood.

However, Croatians, instead of the word “horse”, use the word “Cornelian cherry”.
