Wild Cherry
Botanical Name: Prunus avium

Red cherries on a wild cherry tree.

The wild cherry tree belongs to the same genus (Prunus) as peach, apricot, plum, almond and sloe (blackthorn).

During blossom season it produces masses of beautiful, white flowers.

The berries are very aromatic and range in colours from yellow over orange, red, deep red to almost black.

Here in Denmark, wild cherries grow in chalky soil in woods, wood edges, windbreaks, and old grazing fields.

The wild cherry tree is very common on the small island of Bornholm, and scattered throughout other parts of the country.
