Can somebody ID the variety of chokeberry? thanks




Pokeweed, actually, Bathgate. Most likely Phytolacca americana. Chokeberries come in round clusters, like their kin, Cherries.

Phytolacca americana American pokeweed going by the berry arrangement.
the Indian Poke Phytolacca acinosa has a denser cluster of berries.

both are toxic if ingested and the sap is a skin irritant so handle with care.
