HackberryCeltis is a genus of about 60-70 species of deciduoustrees in the elm family Ulmaceae, widespread in warm temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, in southern Europe, southern and eastern Asia, and central North America. They are generally medium-sized trees, reaching 10-25 m tall, rarely up to 40 m tall.
The fruit is a small drupe 6-10 mm diameter, edible in many species, with a dryish but sweet, sugary consistency, reminiscent of a date.
