  1. Cherries were brought to America by ship with early settlers in the 1600s.
  2. Cherry pie filling is the number one pie filling sold in the US.
  3. Darker cherries have higher antioxidant and vitamin levels than lighter ones, but sour cherries, which are generally bright red rather than a darker red-purple in color, have far higher levels than sweet.
  4. The main kinds of cherries can be found growing on tall trees that range between fifteen and thirty meters tall.
  5. Asian varieties, such as the Japanese Sakura, (known colloquially as the cherry blossom) are well-regarded for their long, weeping branches filled with small pink flowers.
