Western Chokecherry vs Mustang Cherry Plum

Prunus virginiana var. demissa

Prunus x Jefchum

Western Chokecherry
Mustang Cherry 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, jellies or wine, but are not very palatable for raw eating.

Mustang Cherry Plum is a cherry-plum hybrid. You'll enjoy its fragrant white flowers in spring and sweet fruit in late August. Mustang Cherry Plums are about one inch diameter and they have a strong cherry taste. This plant is small enough to fit in moderately sized yards.

Because of Mustang Cherry Plum's genetics and cold hardiness, it can also be used as grafting rootstock.
