Cherries are small, round stone fruits that come in two main types: sweet and sour. They have a long stalk and a fleshy drupe that contains a hard stone. They grow on trees in small clusters and are typically dark red in color. In addition to being tasty, cherries are also a good source of fiber, which is important for maintaining a healthy digestive system. Studies have shown that diets high in fiber may help reduce the risk of colon and rectal cancer, as well as other diseases that affect the digestive tract.
