Arbutus unedo, commonly known as the Irish Strawberry Tree serves as a bee plant for honey production, and the fruits are food for birds. The fruits are also used to make jams, beverages, and liqueurs (such as the Portuguese medronho, a type of strong brandy).
In folk medicine, the plant has been used for antiseptic, astringent, intoxicant, rheumatism, and tonic purposes. (info from Wikipedia)
