In the Bible, the forbidden fruit, the fruit of the knowledge is the apple, not the cherry.

 

I find that the cherry is suited enough as symbol of one of the manners to acquire some knowledge :

  • it is not the fruit which which is offered as an apple, as we pass on(transmit) a knowledge.
  • it is rather the fruit which gathers, as we gather one thousand knowledges according to its readings and experiences.
  • it is not the fruit which has to wait for the murissement slow and is eatable in autumn, but a fruit which tastes(savours) from the end of the spring, or as soon as our brain is ready to approach all the knowledges.
  • and thus a fruit which does not need a tempter culprit (snake, woman, as in the Bible), but whose fruits at hand pick easily, while those who are high in the branches oblige to climb with effort to collect them.
  • furthermore, it is fruits which can be used as ornament, as we make it, in its youth, when we put them around its ears or around the ears of his lover - lover...

In brief, the cherry the picking of which peaks in fine June, the beginning of July, is good this fruit symbol of the harvests and the pleasures to come, real or symbolic.

 

Definition of the term Cerise, of the dictionary of Furetiere of 1690

CHERRY, Small red berry which is the first ones which comes to spring. Under this general name we understand the bad lucks, the bigarreaux, the cherries, the Morello cherries, the guindous, the cœurets, and the wild cherries. Morello cherries of Dauphiné and Italy are the same thing as what we call in France cherry. The Morello cherry is a big black, soft and excellent cherry, the pit of which is red. Its tree has the bigger wood, and the leaf wider and more brown than the others. There are white, red bad lucks, and black, that we transplant on wild cherries that we find in woodwind. We call them in Tuscany marchianes, and durassines, that we understand under the name of cherry. There are also wild cherries which we call in Italy corbines, which are more slim, soft and firm, and which darken lips. There is a cherry with branch which we call jemelle, of which some are hasty and premature.
There is a white cherry, which being very mature, becomes amber and yellowish. The cherry of Portugal is the most beautiful, the biggest, and the best of all; and Its color is of an admirable rosiness, but it loads little. The cherry of Morello cherry is big and late, is in short tail, and the most estimates. We name it in some places coulars. Guindous makes cherries of Languedoc which are very soft and big, and of a highly esteemed brown red.
The bigarreau is a species of longer and harder cherry, which darkens and hardens by maturing. There is a late bigarreau or of iron, which matures later, and which is not so subject to the worms as the ordinary. It is of an excellent taste, and makes a beautiful tree. The cœuret is a species of bigarreau softer, and made in heart, of which the taste is raised. Its wood is bigger, and the wider leaf. There is finally a blue cherry, which is rarer than any other one, which came recently from Flanders, and is of a delicious taste. The first cherries were brought by Lucullus de Cerasunte city of Bridge, after he had loser Mithridate, in what says Pline: how is it that they still bear the name in Latin, cerasum. Bartholin says that to have some very delicate wine of cherry, it is necessary to intone it in hogsheads made by some wood of cherry tree, which communicates it its virtue.

CHERRY TREE, Tree which wears cherries. The cherry tree has eaves similar to the medlar, but wider and more indented. It wears white flowers in the style of grapes, where from a red berry attached to a long and slender tail goes out. Its pit( ) is of the thickness of a pea, where there is small a little bit bitter almond. Its wood is made by small fibers, and its bark is very smooth. Cherry trees also produce a gum or a birdlime, and do not stand the fertilizer. Matthiole. There is a cherry tree in bunch, the flower of which is beautiful, and which produces cherries in clusters as the grape; but its fruit is small as one wild cherry. There are wild cherries, also-although cherry trees, in double and very beautiful flowers.

 

Extract of the article Cerise, of the dictionary of Natural history of Guérin, of 1833

We celebrate, in Hamburg, the party of Cerise, children's choruses travel streets, holding green twigs, in charge of Cerise. Here is the origin of this party : in 1432, Hussites marched on the city of Hamburg, to destroy it from top to bottom. A citizen, named Wolf, suggested sending to the enemies a mission of children from seven to fourteen years old, wrapped in mortuary sheets. The show of these innocent beings which, beginning the life, came to him covered with the badges of the death, was a surprise and touched the leader of the Hussites, Procope Nasus. He embraced these young supplicants, treated them with Cerise, promised to them to spare the city, and kept promises.
