Cherry trees typically grow in warmer climatic regions.
Cherry trees have a gray/black trunk with the tree foliage being green and/or pink (depending on the season). As the seasons change, the color of the leaves will also change to reflect the appropriate season. Some trunk blocks will have leaves overlaying them, but they are still part of the trunk. There may be cherries hanging upon the leaves.
When a cherry tree is mostly a whitish pink, particles will descend from its leaves to suggest falling blossom petals.
Cherry trees will bear cherries from its leaves during summer. Cherries, if in season, are harvested by hand and can be collected by passing through their space or when adjacent to the cherry after it was tapped on. They do not require nor do they benefit from using any particular tools. Agriculturally, the fruit can be placed in a block of dirt or compost to grow a cherry tree for farming additional cherries or can be eaten to replenish a blockhead's health and hunger bars.
Wood may be also harvested from the tree's trunk. Doing so will despawn any leaves or trunk blocks on the same layer or above. For harvesting wood, using an axe will produce quicker results and a larger yield than by hand.
Cherry trees are deciduous plants of the genus Prunus and are thus related to plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, and almonds. Their subgenus is typically Cerasus.
