"Rhamnus carolinianus - Indian cherry
Edible Uses
Fruit - raw or cooked. The fruit has a thin rather dry flesh[82] with a
sweet and agreeable flavour[2, 11, 105, 229]. The fruit is about 7 -
10mm in diameter and contains 2 - 4 small seeds[229]. Some caution is
advised, see the notes above on toxicity."

No mention of the annual amount of fruit produced.
