Tree ID: Is this a cherry tree?

This is a volunteer in a flower bed. I have another cherry tree (Northstar, I think) in my yard and a flowering cherry, but it could also have been a bing cherry from all the spitting that happens on the patio, LOL. These leaves are long though... about 6 inches each. The bark is smooth and flecked. I'll post a picture of that too. Any idea what I have?

Any way of guessing which kind?

Looks like our native cherry: Prunus serotina.

If the cherry cultivars are grafted perhaps their offspring are not true to form.

Looks like a peach to me - and to many people on Fruits and Orchards where this question was also posted.
