Cornaceae -- Dogwood family

    Susan Kossuth and Robert L. Scheer

    Ogeechee tupelo (Nyssa ogeche), also called Ogeechee-lime, sour  tupelo-gum, white tupelo, and bee-tupelo (3), is a scarce small  tree or much branched shrub found along rivers and swamps of the  Coastal Plain in constantly wet soils that are often flooded. The  wood is of little value, but the mature fruits and their juice  are used by people. It is also an important honey tree.

    Much of the information given here was contributed by L.  T. Nieland, formerly State Extension Forester, Gainesville, FL,  who observed Ogeechee tupelo for many years in its natural  habitat and experimented with its cultivation for farm use.
