Can You Eat Cherries from a Weeping Cherry Tree?

I've got a weeping cherry tree. It's beautiful and doing well, but for the first time since we've lived here, (7 years), it's now got fruit on it! I assume cherries are normal on a weeping cherry tree. Did I never notice them before, or does it generally take years to become fruit bearing? And can I eat them? Thanks.

They taste like Black Heart cherries with a little aftertaste, but since the seed is so big, I think they'd be better to make a syrup out of than to sit and eat. They turn your mouth purple-black. May be great for Halloween night. (06/18/2008)
