    The cherries are delicious... but they don't have a lot of "meat" to the fruit.

    The pits within them are rather large, hence the term choke-cherries.

    The Scats with choke-cherry pits look like this :

    The bushes look like this (this is a rather large one, usually not quite this well developed):

    Those sure look like choke cherries, but choke cherries are usually very bitter; they're nearly caustic. Not really suitable for human consumption. Makes me wonder if they might be something else if they were delicious. Do you have a picture of the uneaten fruit? If they are choke cherries, and are sweet, you might consider going back to that patch and picking some for jam.

    Well maybe they're Acerola cherries. Anyhoo several fellas told me they were choke-cherries, and they tasted amazing. But very little meat on the fruit due to that large pit in them.

    Whatever they are, it's neat that you can eat them!
