This is the wild fruit that grows along fence rows and ditches all across Canada and is called "Cerise a grape" in Quebec or "chokecherry" in rest of Canada. This plant is a tough hardy shrub that produces copious amounts of grape-like clusters of black fruit in summer. The small cherry-like fruit is somewhat astringent but also sweet and full of flavour when eaten fresh of the tree. The fruit can be made into wine or processed into jams, etc. I love them almost as much as the summer birds and other wildlife but there is always enough of the prolific fruit to go around.  Birds spread them all over your farm for free so chokecherry supply never seems to dwindle. Small tree is hardy to zone 2 or -40 C and can take sun or shade.
