The Canadian red cherry tree is also known as the 'stripey-bark'.
Canada red chokeberry was introduced to North America in 1866 and quickly became a favorite because of its abundant fruiting. The green leaves of Canada red chokeberries are between 3-6 in (0.07-0.15 m) long and about half as wide.
They are dark green, simple, ovate to elliptic, and finely serrated along the margins. The arching branches of these plants are round. The foliage also has a wonderful citrus fragrance when rubbed or crushed. Starting in June, clusters of flowers appear that are either dark purple or white, with five petals on branches and measure between 1-2 in (0.02-0.05 m) across. These flowers become small red fruits with a round to egg shape. They have five prominent, whitish tubercles arranged in a star pattern. In addition, they show tufts of red hair at the tips of their lobes and twigs. It's typically 17 years old when the plant starts bearing fruit on branches. Yes, the cherries from a Canadian red cherry tree are edible. However, they aren't usually intended for human consumption. The fruit is bitter and acidic and is generally left for animals to enjoy. A red cherry can grow almost anywhere as long as it gets enough sunlight. However, the plant thrives in areas with full sun, six or more hours per day. Since this plant likes well-drained soil, be sure that your growing area has good drainage; heavy clay soil doesn't allow proper drainage and can lead to root rot disease. The trunk of the plant is straight in its growth. These plants stand through the cold, harsh winters. If you want to dry out the fruit, then pruning the blooms and fruits is best done during the spring season. Pruning also increases air circulation, along with good planting conditions for trees.
