A friend told me yesterday about a shrub called "goumi".  The fruit looks a little like a
cherry and "tastes like PEZ".  He says the bush is nitorgen fixing!!

True?  Anybody familiar with this shrub?

I just ordered a bunch of siberian pea shrubs, honey locust trees and russian olive
trees, all because they are nitrogen fixing and provide food for

Are there any other trees or bushes for zone 4/5 that I might be overlooking?
