NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON
Western Chokecherry is a shrub or small tree commonly used for farmstead and field windbreaks.
Boughen's Golden Chokecherry typically grows into a shrub form with yellow fruit and beautiful green foliage. This type of chokecherry is particularly sweet because it is non-astringent, meaning that it does not produce tannins. Tannins are what create the puckering, or sour taste when eating something unripe.
