Cherries are small, round fruits that are normally red in color. When they are red, they are sweet. If they are dark, they are most likely sour. Cherries are delicious eaten on their own, but are also used in many desserts. They are the most popular fruit in the United States, especially during the summer, where they are most plentiful.
Cherry trees are usually found in temperate areas, which are areas that do not get too hot during the summer and are not too cold during the winter.
These trees are very common in Japan, where they are often planted in public areas. These trees are prevalent in the North Western parts of the U.S., where the pink blossoms are a beacon of spring.
Not all cherry trees bear fruit. Some are ornamental and planted for their ability to provide shade and their beautiful looks when they display their flowering buds.
Even the wood from cherry trees is useful and can be used to make furniture.
