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.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location where your Canada Red will receive full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil. If you’re in an area where hot, dry summers are common, provide your plant with partial shade in the afternoon.

Dig a hole that’s as deep as the root ball and twice the width. Amend the soil with acid-rich compost made from organic matter. Carefully remove the plant from its container and place it in the hole. Fill the hole surrounding the roots with soil, tamping down firmly. Water your plant to help remove air pockets from the soil.

2. Watering: Water your Canada Red regularly after planted, ensuring the soil is moist to a depth 2 inches down. Once the plant is established, it will be somewhat drought tolerant but will produce a larger amount of flowers and cherries if watered regularly.

3. Fertilizing: Chokecherries do not typically need to be fertilized unless they’re growing more slowly than normal. If this is the case, apply 10-10-10 fertilizer in spring around the base of the tree.

4. Pruning: Prune your Chokecherry in early spring to remove any dead or broken branches or branches that are crisscrossing and rubbing together.
