Git cherry-picking in simple words

In Git, “cherry-picking” means taking a single commit from one branch and applying it onto another branch.

It’s like picking just one cherry (commit) from a tree (branch) and placing it on a different tree (another branch), without disturbing the rest of the cherries (commits). This is useful when you want to include specific changes from one branch into another, without merging all the changes.
