Why 'Canada Red' Chokecherry Trees?

Showy white blossoms in spring and green leaves that turn to an eye-catching shade of dark maroon all summer: The 'Canada Red' Chokecherry is unlike any other tree available. In the fall, the leaves turn bright shades of red and yellow to stand out as the brightest focal point on the block. And best of all, they deliver a harvest of cherries.

'Canada Red' Chokecherries are a delectable treat with a sour zing that’s followed by a rich earthy flavor. When snacking on them fresh, you’ll enjoy their crunchy, firm skin and chewy texture as their tart juice flows.

Their sharp, dry flavors are reminiscent of fine red wine, perfect for cooking. Most people use these Chokecherries for making sweet and sour jams and pies, as well as homemade wines and juices.

Plus, the Chokecherry delivers gorgeous good looks and one-of-a-kind bounties with virtually no upkeep. Wind resistant, drought-tolerant, and extremely cold hardy as well as manageably-sized, the Chokecherry merges all the best benefits of your favorite fall trees and shrubs into one must-have package.

In fact, the Chokecherry is hardy down to an unbelievable -30 degrees, so it thrives in northern areas with extremely harsh winters. Basically, nothing stops them from providing vibrant colors and tons of delicious Chokecherries.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Some nurseries ship their 'Canada Red' Chokecherries bare-rooted, leaving up to 90% of the roots behind (if they even stock them at all). This means that you lose up to a year of growth while your tree is struggling to replace its root system.

But you can be assured that when you order your Canada Red from Fast Growing Trees, you are getting well-rooted trees, ready for explosive growth. These larger trees offer more developed branching for faster, more vibrant color, better long-term results, and fresh cherries, year after year.

The only catch is ordering your Chokecherry Tree before they sell out! Don't wait - get your Canada Red Chokecherry Tree today.

Update to my October review

I’m so excited to see these trees bloom. I planted them in October. We had perfect weather. Not too cold but consistently drizzly. I’m in northern IL and the buds started emerging about 10 days ago.

Arrive nicely. Just in time for first frost. Dropped its leaves. Hope it comes back healthy in the spring

Arrived in great shape!

So far so good. I got it in the ground about a week before our temps dropped and rains came. Now it has dropped its leaves but I’m confident it’s establishing its roots!

lives up to it being tough tree but beautiful

I have to keep an eye on to many small long run away branches and cut them back.

What do I think?

To early to tell. Just planted, but it seems to be doing good. Time will tell.
