In the same way all apples are apples - it depends on how specific you are being. There are broad categories such as red cherries, morello cherries, then more specific varieties that often have weird and wonderful names. And probably local dialect names, of course.

As others have said, there is usually no distinction in normal speech.

Gardeners, however, would probably refer to sweet (or dessert) cherries, and acid (or cooking) cherries.

Edit: Cooks also would probably make the distinction.

So if I went to a grocery store I would have to say:


One kilo of sweet and one kilo of sour cherries please ?
