The cherry is scientifically named Prunus
avium from Prunus genus, Rosaceae family and is Peronoid subfamily. This plant is among the flowering
and unseen seed plants. Cherry is one of the important, attractive and
economically valuable crops in the world. First evidence of using cherry as a
food source goes back to 5,000 BC. More than two thousand years is now passed
since cherry’s cultivation, but in recent decades, with the introduction of new
crop resistant varieties and shortened bases, this product has expanded
remarkably in the globe.
