Can Anyone Tell Me What These Are?

Stumbled across a deer grubbing on these fruits that hit the ground yesterday, some are still on the trees. Fruits are about the size of a large blueberry. My first thought was wild black cherries, I know this is the time of year the fruit matures, but most black cherry trees I've seen in the woods have a darker colored bark on the trees, and grow much straighter and taller. This tree seems to have four large trunks growing out of the same base. I know what hawthorn trees are, I know that's not the answer.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

I'm not an ID expert but that looks like a plum tree to me.

Wild black cherry.

The bark will vary in its shades of gray. But the texture/pattern is always the same.

Took the dogs back for a run this morning, this time I popped one open, and they had pits in them (lousy cell phone pic). Didn't smell like much, too tart for my taste. I wanted to be sure before I chewed into one. Thanks!

Prunus Serotina. Bark, leaves and pits are especially toxic. I stay away from the fruits. turkeys love the pits.


However, it is one of the highest value timber trees we have in PA.

Black cherry.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
