Prunus avium or Prunus serotina

Cherries were known to the ancient Greeks, Romans and Chinese. In Japan, cherry trees are much celebrated to this day with the cherry blossom festivals and viewing parties every spring. The brief and stunning appearance of the blossoms are said to represent the briefness and fragility of life.
Cherries were brought to the US in the 1600s. Most commercially grown cherries in the US today are grown in Michigan, Oregon and Washington.

Cherries are associated with sex, particularly when it is fun and playful.

When eating cherries, take a moment to reflect on life itself and the need to seize every moment.

Cherries are delicious dried in porridge, baked goods, rice pilafs and puddings and fresh and dried in salads and as a snack out of hand. Sour cherries are the best cherries for pies and are recommended by some holistic practitioners for nerve and arthritis pain, for insomnia, and to support brain and cardiovascular health.
