  • IU'm not familiar with Chokecherry. Is the fruit bad tasting?

  • Hi mountain mama, no, the fruit is perfectly edible (though I've never tried it); here's a post from last fall that shows close-ups of both flowers and fruit.

    Chokecherry grows wild; it comes up everywhere in the brush and tends to "take over." I should've explained in the post -- the maple tree was planted by someone I know; the chokecherry around the trunk is flourishing completely on its own :-)
