The cherry is thought to have been brought to Rome from northeastern Anatolia, also known as the Pontus region, in 72 BC. It should be noted however, that the range of the wild cherry extends through most of Europe, and that the fruit is believed to have been consumed through its range since prehistoric times.

The English word cherry, French cerise, Spanish cereza all come from the Classical Greek through the Latin cerasum, thus the ancient Roman place name Cerasus, from which the cherry was first exported to Europe.

A form of cherry was introduced into England at Tyneham, near Sittingbourne in Kent by order of Henry VIII, who had tasted them in Flanders.
