    Chokecherries grow in clusters like grapes and the berries only have one seed.

    high bush cranberry berries are in a large flat cluster only have 1 flat seed and the leaves are similar to a maple leaf with three lobes

    so your berries are neither chokecherry or high bush cranberry

    Looks like Glossy Buckthorn from the picture....would suggest taking a sample of the leaf and berries to your local tree service/nursery for expert opinion. Whatever it is, it's sustenance for the local wildlife. Lucky them, lucky you! Enjoy

    Is there a reason that you don’t think it is just a cherry? Is it in your yard? Eat one! Cherries have a stone seed. Looks like one of the many kinds of cherries.

    It could be a wild black cherry tree.

    Never eat anything like this without knowing for sure what it is! Best to take it to a nursery or other expert for identification. Take leaves and berries and a photo.
