both as flavoring and as an important herbal cough suppressor.

Native to the Eastern U.S. and an important wildlife habitat species-at least 70 kinds of birds eat the small tart cherries which grow in long racemes all over the tree.

The fruit is used for jellies, lemonades, liqueurs, teas, and syrups. Caution: wilted leaves poisonous

BOTANICAL NAME Prunus serotina

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Best method is to plant in a pot and set outside in summer, leaving the pot outside for germination the next spring. Seeds need a warm moist period in a dark place, followed by a chilling period before they will sprout. If you can't plant in late summer, soak the seed in water for a month, then put in a jar with something moist (moss, cotton) but not wet and store in the refrigerator (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Prepare the permanent spot as you would any perennial crop.
