MOUNTAIN ASH WINE
The American mountain ash (Sorbus americana) and decorative mountain ash (Sorbus decora) are the two major species of mountain ash indigenous to North America. The fruit of Sorbus americana is a berry that grows in clusters, measures about a half-centimeter in diameter, and ripens in August and beyond to a bright red. It is quite sour, but suddenly becomes edible after a frost.
The fruit of Sorbus Decora is slightly larger, ripens to an orange to orange-red, and is quite a bit tastier than the former but still much better tasting after a frost. The fruit makes a pretty good wine. If the wine is made before a frost, one will always taste the wildness of the fruit. If made with frost-tempered fruit, the wine will be very good.
