Cherry (Rosaceae)

Cherries were cultivated by the Romans, from trees probably originating in the Black Sea - they introduced them to our shores. They make excellent jam, and can be successfully preserved by drying in the sun, or by preserving in sugar or brandy. Popular sweet cherry varieties include Bing, Lambert and Windsor. See 'Cherries, to keep'; 'Cherries, Medicinal uses'
