Cherry Tree History

The cherries most popular for eating have derived primarily from the Wild Cherry (P. avium), which has given rise to the Sweet Cherry to which most cherry cultivars belong. The Sour Cherry (P. cerasus) is used mainly for cooking. Both species originate in Europe and western Asia; they do not cross-pollinate each other.
