Answer: Choke cherry (Prunus virginiana) produces clusters of fruits at the ends of branches. If you haven't been pruning your shrub and inadvertantly removing next year's flowering wood, perhaps your plant just needs a bit more time to mature. Choke cherry does not require a pollinator. Watch for flower clusters next spring and you'll be able to determine how much fruit the plant might set during the summer months. Birds love the fruit but people find them quite astringent.
