There are many varieties of cherries that grow in nature. Among these, the most commonly sold on the market are sweet cherries (Prunus avium) and sour cherries(Prunus cerasus), which are produced from the crossbreeding between the former and a wild cherry species called the dwarf cherry (Prunus fruticosa). As their names imply, the sweet cherry is rich in sugars but low in acid content while the opposite is true for the sour cherry. Regardless of your preference, you can still enjoy a lot of health benefits from eating either of the two.
