    Can't seem to ID...

    I have a tree that is large and branchy with rough bark, The leaves are oval shaped with rusty red spots all over them and right now the tree is producing these small coffee bean shaped green berries that are soft to squeeze. The tree is loaded with these little oval shaped berries.
    I live in South Mississippi.

    Black Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica)

    Its fruit is 3/4 to 1/2 inch long and turns dark blue-black in the fall before dropping. Its glossy leaves are 2 to 5 inches long turning bright red in autumn with sometimes a little purple or orange mixed in.
    It's a handsome ornamental and shade tree, Black Tupelo is also a great honey plant for bees. The juicy fruit is consumed by many birds and mammals. On average they reach 50 to 100 feet tall and grow trunk diameters of around 2 to 3 feet but on rare occasions in good growing sites they can reach over 120 feet tall and obtain trunk diameters up to 6 feet wide. They have a Slow to moderate growth rate. Black Tupelo is a very long lived tree and can reach 700 years old and possibly older. Black Tupelo is currently in 6th place of my favorite trees out of about 63 trees I selected.

    Watch this tree turn to a brilliant red in the upcoming months. One of my faves in the fall. The birds and other wildlife will flock to the fruit when it ripens.
