Chokeberry shrubs are a native Missouri plant found commonly in boggy or wet areas. The dark fruits are technically edible but so astringent as to cause choking in most of those who try. While fruits are sometimes used to make tasty jams and jellies you may want to save them for the birds who love the black berries.
