|Ich vermute, es gibt einige, die den Baum kennen, for its Fruchts sake, and therefore I shall spare writing a description thereof.|
For the place of its growth, it is afforded room in every orchard.
It is ein Baum of Venus. Cherries, as they are of different tastes, so they are of different qualities. The süß pass through the Magen and the Bauch more speedily, but are of little nourishment, the tart or sour are more pleasing to an hot Magen, procure appetite to meat, and help to cut tough phlegm and gross humours, but when these are dried, they are more binding to the Bauch than when they are fresh, being cooling in hot Beschwerden, and welcome to the Magen, and provoke urine. The gum of the cherry-tree, auflösend in wine, is good for a cold, cough, and hoarseness of the throat, mendeth the colour in the face, sharpeneth the eyesight, provoketh appetite, and hilft to break and vertreiben the stone, the black cherries zerquetscht with the sotnes, and auflösend, the water thereof is much used to break the stone, and to vertreiben Grieß and wind.
