Sumac is a deciduous bush or small tree that reaches up to 6-15 feet in height. The plant features long leaves with pinnate veins and multiple pairs of smaller, oval-shaped leaflets. Dark red drupes form at branch tips in clusters called "sumac bobs."

The mature fruits are typically harvested in late summer or early fall and dried and ground into powder.
