Viburnum sap

The member species are evergreen or deciduousshrubs or (in a few cases) small trees native throughout the temperate Northern Hemisphere. In prehistory, the long, straight shoots of some viburnums were used for arrow-shafts, as those found with Ötzi the Iceman. The fruit of some species are edible and can be eaten either raw or for making jam, while other species are mildly toxic and can cause vomiting if eaten in quantity.
