We have a small tree (more like a shrub) in our village in North Eastern Anatolia, and it is known for its local name which is not Turkish. Even worse, I don't know which language it is, but most likely there are Armenian, Georgian, maybe Russian influences in the regions' language. So I cannot find it in literature.

It is spelled as "syr-sun-syllic". Its fruit has a name too, that is pronounced like "lyllic". It gives red and round fruits in autumn, which are edible.

Here are some photos.

It is said to be "lonicera iberica" by http://nhm.co.uk, which has edible fruits.

    $\begingroup$ could you describe the flowers and the fruit? the way the leaves grow reminds me of honeysuckle (Lonicera). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It is spelled as "syr-sun-syllic". Its fruit has a name too, that is pronounced like "lyllic". Our villages have more words that are not Turkish. Even the villages called with their non turkish old names by the peasents. I think probable languages affected us are armenian, georgian, maybe russian etc. $\endgroup$ Jul 13, 2016 at 9:59

    $\begingroup$ The leaves are indeed similar to lonicera (honeysuckle). How do the flowers and fruit look? What color, size and shape do they have? Do they grow solitary or in groups? Any info might help (and a picture would be fantastic). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It would be nice if you could expand this answer and add a picture of the plant. Additionally it is always good to not give just a one-line answer but one, that stands on its own and explains stuff. $\endgroup$
