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.

September Ruby is a very cold hardy tree developed for the Prairie Fruit Breeding Cooperative. It is a vigorous grower that is resistant to fire blight and is popular among orchards for its annual production. Its apples are very good for eating and cooking. This tree blooms in mid May for an attractive ornamental.

Note: We do not ship grafted apples to BC due to regulatory restrictions from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
