Wild cherry is native from, across Europe to Western Asia. The cultivated sweet cherry is derived from the wild cherry. Turkey is the leading producer of cherries, with the USA trailing behind. Due to the high cost in production, it is an expensive fruit to eat.
When mature, it is bright red to dark red or purple with a single hard stone. Tastes sweet with a tinge of tartness. While we eat wild cherry, shall we play that funky music wild again :)
