Western Chokecherry
Crimson Passion Cherry

Western Chokecherry is a shrub or small tree commonly used for farmstead and field windbreaks.

It produces white flowers in the spring and edible dark purple fruit that matures between September and October. Its cherries are great for making for making jams and jellies (or wine), but are not very palatable for raw eating.

The Crimson Passion Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid dwarf Sour Cherry. This medium-sized self-pollinator produces tart, bright red fruits in large clusters in late summer that are perfect for jams, pies and jellies. Crimson Passion Cherry is ideal as a landscape or orchard tree.
