Description

Wild black cherry

Fruits absent at time of observation/ collection, but fruits were present earlier in the summer. These fruits (drupes) are inedible, with some reports of using the fruit as a type of red dye (unconfirmed?).

Leaves were present and beginning the process of fall senescence.

Aside from some peach trees, this specimen only shares this habitat with another member of the same species.
