Cherry (genus Prunus) is a tree on which cherry fruits grow. The cherry fruits of commerce are usually obtained from a limited number of species, including especially cultivars of the wild cherry, Prunus avium.[1]

WandloreEdit

Cherry is very rare wand wood that makes for a wand of strange power, most highly prized by the wizarding students of the school of Mahoutokoro in Japan, where those who own cherry wands have special prestige.[2]

The Western wand-purchaser should dispel from their minds any notion that the pink blossom of the living tree makes for a frivolous or merely ornamental wand, for cherry wood often makes a wand that possesses truly lethal power, whatever the core - though if paired with dragon heartstring, the wand ought never to be teamed with a wizard without exceptional self-control and strength of mind.[2]

Notable cherry wand ownersEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In Japan, 花見 (Hanami) is a traditional practice of picnicking under a 桜 (sakura) (Japanese cherry) tree, hence a possible reason why a wand of cherry would be valued by Japanese wizards.[3]
