Berries are juicy, round or semi-
oblong, brightly coloured, sweet or
sour, and don't have a stone or pit,
although many seedsmay be
present. The seeds are embedded
in the flesh of the ovary.
Firethorns are cultivated,
evergreen shrubs with thorny
branches, dark green leaves, white
flowers and orange or red berries.
I like the ones with red berries the
best, so I only plantedred-berried
Pyracantha cultivars.
The berries are edible , but
unfortunately they taste like
dry,old, mealy apples. Birds and
animals love them though, and
myFirethorn bushes are quickly
losing their berries to the
Recently, I started hearing rustling
in the Firethorn bushes outside of
my bedroom window late at night,
along with the repeated sound of
something heavy falling onto the
bed of rocks below. It kept waking
me up, and I was afraid that it
might be a creepy person lurking
in thebushes or something. I
eventually discovered that the
lurker was actually a Coyote .
Because the Javelinas have already
eaten all of the Firethorn leaves
and berries within close reach of
the ground, the Coyote was having
to jump quite high for hanging
berry clusters, causing the strange
noises that I heard. These noises
still wake me up, butI'm relieved
that it's just a weird Coyote with a
taste for Firethornberries and not
a weird human.
