On the sign:
עוזרר חד-גלעיני
Crataegus monogyna

תפוצה טבעית: מרכז ודרום אירופה, המזרח התיכון, ישראל

צבעים זוהרים מאפיינים עץ נמוך זה רוב השנה: באביב - פרחים קטנים, לבנים. עם בוא הסתיו, הוא מתכסה למספר חודשים בפירות אדומים בהירים הנראים בין העלים הירוקים, המחולקים. אחרי נשירת העלים, הפירות בולטים מול כחול השמים.

[The second face of the cube]
Common Hawthorn
Crataegus monogyna

Natural range: Central and Southern Europe, Middle East, Israel

Colors sparkle in this small tree, much of the year. Little white flowers signal spring. Autumn brings brilliant red berries, lasting several months. These are seen first among bright green, lobed leaves, and later, after leaf fall, against the blue sky.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
העוזרר הוא ממשפחת הורדיים, שכוללת עצי פרי רבים כמו תפוחים, אגסים, משמשים, אפרסקים, דובדבנים ושקדים. טעם פרי אחד אדום. האם הפרי מזכיר בטעמו אחד מהפירות ממשפחתו?

[a question]
Hawthorn’s cousins in the rose family include the apple, pear, apricot, peach, plum, cherry, loquat and almond. If the red berries are out, taste one. How does it compare to its cousins?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
למרבית האנשים, טעמו תפל בהשוואה לפירות אחרים ממשפחת הורדיים. אולי לדעתכם הוא טעים. אך טעם הוא דבר אישי.

[The Answer to the question]
Most people find these berries bland tasting, compared to many other fruits of the rose family. But taste is an individual matter, so they may be to your liking.
