I just moved to a new house about a year ago. One of the first things I did was plant several native trees and herbs. One in particular that I’ve always wanted but couldn’t have at my last house because of space and light constraints was an Eastern Black Cherry (Prunus Serotina var. serotina).
When mature, this is a big, beautiful messy tree, loved by birds and wildlife. The fruit is edible – it’s what black cherry candy and soda are made of.
