Cherries were named after the Turkish town Cerasus and date back to at least 300 BCE. The early American settlers were so fond of them that the cherry tree was one of the first fruit trees brought to the New World. French colonists continued the growth of the cherry tree in this country by planting cherry pits along the St Lawrence River and the Great Lakes.
