Sour cherry is known as native fruit in most parts of Europe and Southwest Asia. This fruit is similar to cherry, with the difference that it is more acidic and provides more nutritional benefits to humans. Sour cherry has always been popular with the Persian Empire and the Roman Empire and was brought to Greece from around the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea about 300 BC. In the sixteenth century, the cultivation of this fruit in Britain became more prevalent. Sour cherry grows naturally in the summer.
