Prunus cerasus (Rosaceae), called tart or sour cherry, is native to Europe and Southwest Asia and grows worldwide. Bright red to nearly black round fruit appear in spring. Tart cherry has many uses in tradition medicine and has been studied for its antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, antidiabetic, and antiarthritic properties, as well as for sleep improvement.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
