The corm is a small seed fruit, yellowish and red in colour but can also be grey according to the specific variety.
Cormé is a 15th century beverage mainly present in the former province of Maine. It was considered a fruit wine, that is to say a fermented beverage made with any plant that could produce a fermentation. The Cormé was the first fermented fruit wine produced from corms. These fruits come from the tree named Cormier also known as Sorbus Domestica. The name of Cormé came from the Gallic "Curmi" which designated a fermented beverage, such as beer. It is the only wild tree that produces consumable fruits in large quantities but small.
