    Really?? Wouldn't it have fruit on it? I think it gets little berries at some point but nothing resembling a cherry.

    It is cherry for sure. I do not think it ever makes the fruit like you eat, it is a different type.
    It definitely burns well.

    looks like the scrappy black cherry that grows around here.
    berries can be red until they start dropping. white cluster flowers in the Spring.
    berries look like a long skinny bunch of miniature grapes

    Eh, don't make light of poop. They burn camel poop in the desert.
