How can you tell the difference between apple and cherry trees?

We compared apple and cherry trees to find the easiest way to tell them apart.

They have similar leaves.
Cherry trees blossom first.
Cherry blossoms are white, but apple are both white and light pink.

For us the bark was the key. The cherry tree bark is smooth compared to the rougher bark on the apple tree.


Determining differences between trees is one way to learn to look at various features. Since there are many similarities between fruit trees it was fun to find a unique feature.
