This species is near and dear to my heart, and it may be the deepest, oldest reason as to why I love fruit trees so much. There was a giant, overgrown sweet cherry tree next to my childhood home's driveway. Some of my favorite memories as a young person involved climbing that tree and eating handfuls of ripe cherries near the end of the school year. After learning about cherries in today's lesson, I hope you're just as excited to grow and care for cherry trees of your own!
Here are the revolving slides that go along with today's lesson. They are viewable via watching the class video above, but viewing the slideshow on its own will be a helpful introduction to the sweet cherry and useful for those who don't want to watch a video.
