I didnt know they were able to grow up here. No chance its just a pin cherry? The fruits look to big imo

No pin cherry because it's fruit is red, ...the only other guess would be a choke cherry.

Looks like prunus serotina to me also. To be sure turn one of the leaves over and look at the thickest part of the midrib. If there is some fuzziness on each side it is BLACK CHERRY!
