Helena: So we grew together,
Like to a double Cherry, seeming parted,
But yet a union in partition;
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem.
Midsummer Night's Dream, act iii, sc. 2 (208).
In sixteenth-century England, cherry trees were commonly cultivated, and known for their beautiful flowers and sweet harvest: single fruits on a twin stem.
