Description

Each order contains two plant to assure good pollination. Chokecherries are extremely tough plants, being cold hardy at least to zone 3 and likely colder regions. Fruit is formed on sprigs like wild black cherry. The seed is large but the plants make a lot of fruit so you can wind up with plenty for processing. We love them fresh but they are certainly astringent. Most folks around here use them in hard cider and in jelly or fruit leather. Ripen in Walden in August.

Available Services:

Tree Pruning
Proper pruning ensures a healthier tree, improves fruit size and increases fruit yield. Fruit trees should be pruned during winter dormancy. We’ll prune individual trees or an entire orchard.

Planting
We offer services for those who would like assistance in planting and/or maintaining trees and help with everything from staking trees to trellising grapes and berries. We will show you the proper procedures for caring for your home orchard or do the maintenance for you.

Custom Grafting
In addition to grafting the fruit trees we sell, we also offer custom grafting services. We can graft a hard to find cultivar, a reproduction from your own tree, or we can graft onto an existing tree on your property. New trees can be sent right away or grown a year here.

Consulting
We do site visits, help with soil and other tests, and planning. Included are written plans for the implementation and day to day operations of your future of existing plantings. Fees vary according to the extent of the operation. Contact us for further info.
