We always called them "Wild Cherries". Makes a great wine.

They're definitely NOT huckleberries. They're wild cherries.

Not Huckleberries
I don't know what they are, but those are not the same berries we called huckleberries growin up in NW Louisiana. The leaves were much smaller and the berries did not grow in groups like that. Maybe do a search for Black Cherry (Prunus Serotina) I think you will find what you're after.

That is wild cherries - my father used to make a wine/liquer with them called "Cherry Bounce" and it was a kicker - delicious.

I believe these are one in the same. The leaves match. I wish I could find one of those, or even a Mayhaw. I would get fatter than I already am.

Thanks
Thank you for the help. I have this large tree in the back that is about to be cut down and have always wondered if the berries were edible. May have to harvest a crop (if wild cherry)and see what I can make of them before the city gets to it. Thanks again.

Save some of the wood...
A friend of mine swears that is the best wood for smoking meat. We call him "The Brisket King" for good reasons. He's been doing it for 40+ years. Save some....
