Black cherry is a valuable forest tree that grows to large size in eastern North America. The bark is dark gray and scaly in mature individuals and this tree prefers well drained, fully sunny sites. As a pioneer species, it is well-suited for old fields or forest edges. It grows fast and large trees can grow to over 20m tall and 1m wide.

Germination: Seeds require warm pre-treatment at around 20 degrees C for 2 weeks, then a cold period at 4 degrees C for approximately 18 weeks in a well-drained substrate.

Packet contains at least 25 seeds.
