Sweet and sour cherries contain several polyphenols that possess antioxidant and anti-inflam- matory properties.

Prunus serrulata: petals emarginate at the apex, sepals ascending to spreading, and drupe 8–10 mm in diameter, purple-black (vs. P. cerasus, with petals entire at the apex, sepals recurved or reflexed, at least post anthesis), and drupe 15–25 mm in diameter, red to purple-black or rarely yellow). Trees must be planted 14–20 ft. apart in well-drained soil and up on a small mound or berm.

Both types require.   Montmorency tart cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) concentrate lowers uric acid, ), the aim of this study was to examine the influence of Montmorency tart cherries on uric acid activity and inflammation.

Sour cherry is smaller than sweet cherry cultivars and can reach up to 10m high. It grows best in moist, rich soil as it requires more nitrogen and water than sweet cherries.
