Western Chokecherry
Pembina Plum

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.

Pembina Plum is an upright tree great for backyards and rural areas. This hardy tree needs to be pollinated by a wild plum tree in order to produce high yields of fruit. We recommend pairing Pembina with Patterson Pride Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.

Pembina Plum's famously large fruit grows to over 2 inches with thick, acidic skin and sweet flesh. People love this fruit for fresh eating, baking, and preserving. Do not procrastinate collecting these plums. If left too long, the fruit will fall off the tree.
