Sweet cherry or Bird Cherry belongs to wild crops.
Excavations have shown that this plant was used in antiquity. The first mention of sweet cherry dates back to the 4th century BC. Over time, breeders moved the tree from Kerasous (considered the birthplace of culture) to the territory of the Roman Empire.
Bird cherry, on average, grows to 15 meters in length, although there have been cases when the trunk, together with the crown, reached 30 meters.
It is a fast growing crop. In the first years after planting, the bark of young cherries is brown, red or silver. In rare cases, the trunk, as the plants grow older, flakes off.
Leaves up to 16 centimeters long have a different shape (pointed, epileptic and other).
White cherry flowers are bisexual (a self-pollinated plant), appearing long before buds open.
Bird cherry is propagated through the seed method, by shoots or through the root system. In the wild, the first option is common.
