The native English wild cherry, Prunus avium, has been planted in native woodlands for many years. It is also known as the "Gean" or "Mazzard" cherry.
Although usually grown for its blossom and aesthetic appeal, the wild cherry will often produce a crop of sweet cherries of average flavour, which are useful for feeding local wildlife.
Prunus avium is the ancestor of nearly all mainstream dessert cherries. This explains why dessert cherry varieties invariably have plain white single-flower blossom.
