Product Description

Black Cherry – Prunus Serotina

 

 

Prunus Serotina, Black Cherry Tree is very popular for homeowners.   The tree has small flowers with five white petals each and about 20 stamens and are fragrant; there are around 40 flowers on each raceme. The fruit starts green and ripens to red then black; it is usually astringent and bitter to eat fresh but it can be sweet. This fruit is readily eaten by birds which do not have the same tastes. Mature trees can easily be identified in a forest by its very broken dark grey to black bark which has the appearance of burnt potato chips. For about the first decade or so of its life the bark resembles that of a Birch and is thin with stripes. It is easily identified by its long shiny leaves resembling that of a Sourwood and by an almond-like odor when a young twig is scratched and held close to the nose.
