A staple of summer, black cherries are a type of stone fruit (aka drupe) born from the flowers of the Prunus serotina tree. While there are several varieties of these sweet cherries, the most common is Bing, which was first developed in Oregon by a pioneer grower who named it for one of his Chinese workmen.
