Tree Identification in WILD PLANT IDENTIFICATION Posted August 24, 2016 Wild cherry is correct. Either choke cherry ,or black cherry would be my best guess. If the fruits end up hanfging in bunches from a stem a d ha e a top somewhat like an eggpla t on them, they are black cherry. If the berries have no green topper on them, they are most likely choke cherries. Either way, they make great jam, cough syrup, etc... a d are hugh in vitamin c. Dont eat the leaves or the pits. The bzrl jas great medicinal qualities as well. Definitely a keeper.
