Virginia Cherry Shrub

Virginia cherry is a very nice adaptable native cherry that grows to 10 feet tall, but is usually shorter and bushy. It produces red edible cherries in summer that are edible and best when dead ripe. They are best described as sour cherries. I will eat them fresh right off the plant when fully ripe but some prefer to use them in syrup, jams and jellies. They are hardy from zone 3-8. They will grow in full sun or shade.

 

Russian Black Mulberry

One of the most productive, adaptable, fast growing and trouble free  tree available.  Extra sweet, purple-black juicy fruit is great for  pies and eating fresh.  Self-pollinating tree.   Zones  4-9. 2-3’feet tall tree sent.
