Prunus avium

Wild Cherry

The ‘Gean’ or ‘Mazzard’.

Single white flowers and good autumn colour makes this one of our most attractive native woodland trees.

It is the parent of most fruiting sweet cherries and in some years will produce a good crop of fruit itself, not necessarily very sweet but good enough to feed the birds.
