Canadian Buffalo Berry is a native deciduous shrub found throughout North America. This hardy, medium-sized shrub will tolerate poor soil conditions and produces attractive, edible–though very bitter–red fruit.

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.

The Boughen's Golden Chokecherry is high yielding and the berries are excellent for sauces, jellies, preserves and wine making.

NOTE: These seedlings were grown from seed, not all will be true to type but some will be.
