Cherry


It is well-known for flavouring. Three types of cherry are mainly grown for their fruit. These are the sweet cherries, the sour cherries and the dukes. The fruit is usually globular shaped, about 2 centimetres (1 inch) in diameter and varies in colour from yellow to red. The acid content of the sweet cherry is low; the higher acid content of the sour cherries produces characteristic tart flavour. Sour cherry trees are smaller, rarely 5 metres (16 ft.) in height.

The fruits of all varieties provide very small amounts of minerals like calcium and phosphorus. It is used fresh, canned or for wine. Cherry wine is very popular among European people. The fruit is used in Indian sweets for flavouring purposes.
