I never knew you could eat the stuff, and also thought the berries were poisonous. Around here, it is pronounced shoe-mack, but spelled sumac. It is a bush, mainly appearing around the edges of a field. After a forest is felled, sumac is one of the first woody plants to regenerate the forest.

I've wondered about that myself. It might be a similar looking shrub that the nave was transferred from, I don't know. But this cultinary stuff is excellent.

Wikipedia discusses the differences in very general terms. I suppose they are related afterall.
