Description
 
Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) is a Massachusetts native that once was an important part of the diet of Native Americans. The fruit is edible but is mostly only used for jellies and preserves since the bitter taste needs sweetening before consumption. Chokecherry leaves, while toxic to livestock, are a very important component to many species of butterfly caterpillars'diets. Some species feed exclusively on Chokecherry foliage. Chokecherry is a large shrub or small tree that can reach as much as 16' in maturity. Price is for a bundle of three 1-2 year transplants that are 2-3' tall.
