maybe a bunch berry? http://www.dec.ny.gov/pubs/60025.html
Also I have never heard of it there is a cranberry tree http://www.finegardening.com/cms/uploadedimages/Images/Gardening/Issues_101-110/041106788_american_cranberry_bush_xlg.jpg
A bush not a tree oops ?
Where is it growing?
Could it be "choke cherry"?
Is it growing wild, or cultivated?
Looks like choke cherry. If it is, they make wonderful jam or jelly.
I'm with Marilyn, that certainly looks like a choke cherry. And the jelly is to die for. LOL
Choke cherry, and the jelly is awesome. My Mom made it for many years
looks like muscadine grapes.
I think huckelberry
Chokecherry. There are large pits inside each berry thus the name. They are not sweet, people in the Rocky Mts pick them and make jelly. BIRDS love them.
@1 result is available, use up and down arrow keys to navigate. I have two chokecherry trees in my backyard in CT. Once the birds have finished eating the mulberries from that tree, they then have the chokecherries. Happy birds. Happy birdwatcher.
Grew up with those in South Dakota and are delicious. Haven't seen one for 40+ years! Thanks. They can get 20+ feet tall as I recall.
Question for you: Do the birds, or other animals like deer, eat it? If they don't then it's probably poisonous. My grandmother said that any tree or bush that has berries or fruit on it if the birds won't eat it then it's probably just a weed. Some weeds can have berry cluster seedlings depending on the weed. I had some that turned purple like a grape but the birds wouldn't touch it. It would also get tall with thick stems and good sized leaves. I can't tell you the name but hope this helps.
take a branch of it into your local Extension service, they will tell you. Look up in the White Pages for your county government, then look for the Extension office of your nearest Agricultural college/university. Every county has one. Your taxes pay for it so get some use of it. :-)
If it is a tree, I would say it is a Chokecherry. My grandparents had many in there yard when I was growing up. The fruit is very tart, but like others have said the fruit makes wonderful jams and jellies. My grandmother also would make a Chokecherry juice that she could can. She loved to put this over ice cream.
Choke cherries have their own natural pectin, I believe. Nope, I was wrong, It's crab apples that have their own pectin.
I believe it is a currant bush. Look at some images of a currant bush and see if that is what it is.
Currants look just like this and make wonderful jelly. Take them to a garden store and I believe they are Currants!
My guess would be currant.
Dew Berrys, for Dew Berry wine!
not currants, the leaves are wrong. They are chokecherries.
Yes they are chokecherries Thanks everyone!
By the way, they grow new bushes everywhere a seed is dropped. I ended up getting rid of mine for that reason because the birds help distribute them also.
It is in my friends yard so she can deal with it Lol!
