Elaeagnus pungensFamily: Elaeagnaceae
English: Thorny olive / silverthorn / oleaster
Japanese: ナワシログミ (Nawashiro gumi)
The leaves have silvery scales and small brown dots on the undersides. The berries of trees in this genus are delicious, but I wonder why the specimen pictured here has such pear-shaped berries? It is known as an invasive species in North America.
