  Cherry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cherry (originally "cherise" reinterpreted as a plural, from the Old French word, in turn from Latin cerasum and Cerasus - i.e., the Classical name of the modern city of Giresun in Turkey) is both a tree and its fleshy fruit, a type known as a drupe with a single hard stone enclosing the seed.
The cherries belong in subgenus Cerasus, distinguished from the rest of the genus by having the flowers in small corymbs of several together (not singly, nor in racemes), and in the fruit being smooth and having only a weak groove or none along one side.
Cherry flowers are sometimes eaten by the larva of the Green Pug moth and the leaves by the larva of other Lepidoptera including Coxcomb Prominent and Yellow-tail.

 Cherry - MSN Encarta
The ancestors of most of the modern cultivated varieties of cherry are probably the sweet, or dessert, cherry and the sour, or pie, cherry.
The sweet cherry tree is frequently planted for its fruit and for its beauty when in flower, and also for its value as a timber tree.
Among important varieties in cultivation are Mazzards, quick-growing trees used as stock for grafting other varieties; Hearts and Bigarreaus, sweet cherries, the latter being firmer and less juicy; Amarelles and Morellos, sugar cherries, the latter being darker colored and sour; and Dukes, hybrids between the sweet and sour forms.

 Barbados Cherry
The Barbados cherry, a member of the Malpighiaceae, is an interesting example of a fruit that rose, like Cinderella, from relative obscurity about 40 years ago.
The Barbados cherry is a large, bushy shrub or small tree attaining up to 20 ft (6 m) in height and an equal breadth; with more or less erect or spreading and drooping, minutely hairy branches, and a short trunk to 4 in (10 cm) in diameter.
At room temperature–85º F (29.44º C) in Puerto Rico–canned Barbados cherries and also the juice lose color and fresh flavor and 53% to 80% of their ascorbic acid content in one month, and metal cans swell because of the development of CO Refrigeration at 44.6º F (7º C) considerably reduces such deterioration.

Unlike her former memoir, "Cherry" is primarily about Mary Karr and about her angst as a teenager and her distinctive transformation as an adolescent in light of a highly untraditional and unorthodox upbringing in a decidedly traditional blue collar town.
Mary Karr's Cherry is a fantastic remembrance of an adolescence which her parents had very little influence over during the late 1960s and early to mid-1970s in the Port Arthur, Gulf region of Texas.
Cherry focuses more on the full range of experiences during her childhood rather than her sexual development or personal or development, or any particular aspect of her adolescence.

Strange though it may seem at first to the unbotanical reader, the Cherries are classed, owing to various details in their structure, as related to that great group of plants known as the Rose tribe.
With these last the Cherries are united by botanists in the genus Prunus, a group mainly characterized by the structure of its well-known fruit, which they term a "drupe." This is simply the enlarged ovary of the flower, the calyx of which has fallen with its snowy petals.
