Black Cherry


The Black cherry tree can range from 25-110 feet in height. It is the largest native Cherry tree to the US. The fruit it produces, the cherries, are edible, but the rest of the tree contains amygdalin, a deadly toxin. The fruit ripens, turning a black color from August to October. Its leaves are shiny, and oblong with a pointed tip and slightly serrated edges. These trees can be used for ornamental purposes and produce beautiful tiny white flowers before fruiting.
