: What does "choke the cherry" mean?

I'm not aware of any phrase "choke the cherry," but there is a chokecherry plant, defined:
n.
1. A deciduous North American shrub or small tree (Prunus virginiana) in the rose family, having elongate clusters of small white flowers and astringent, dark red to nearly black fruit.
2. The fruit of this plant.
There is a phrase "choke the chicken," which is a slangy euphemism for (male) masturbation. Perhaps someone confused the two.
