This is a large deciduous tree that did not have any acorns or nuts last fall, but this spring had tiny white flowers and now is covered in small red berries. We live in North West Georgia. Anyone have any ideas?

    There’s not enough pulp on the pit to make it worth eating for us, but black cherries were very popular in times past for wine-making. It was also used as flavoring for one of the most widely used cough syrups. So the first time I made wild cherry wine, I thought it tasted like medicine. Got used to it quickly, though, and loved the wine.

    This looks like a native wild black cherry. Fruit is tasty to birds but not to people.
