Montmorecy is a wonderful tree but on decent soil it can get large. Nice sized delicious fruit.
I grow 7 Northstars, though I am cutting two down. They often get larger then expected, I was trying to keep mine at 8 and gave up and bought new ones to plant further away from the house.
I have had the first 2 Northstars since 1995 0r 1996 and they have never had disease issues other than a little brown rot now and gin but nothing like my Lapins which almost always gets taken out by brown rot. NorthStar has smaller fruit than Montmorency, however if you let them hang on the tree they become less tarts time goes on. I find them very delicious and spend hours pitting) them by hand and then dehydrating them. And I use the juice (there is lot of it) for syrups and milkshakes.
Northstar makes lovely landscape type tree and I have 5 in my front yard - Montmorency, IMO does not make nearly as nice of a landscape tree.

Montmorency (really a Nankin-cherry x sour-cherry hybrid)
I live in NJ (6b).
I'm going to have Jubileum, Northstar, and Bali (Evans). Bali is an
experiment; although many report bad results with it in warm zones as my
own, Bob Purvis told me his did find under similar circumstances. I'll
I wonder if I should have gotten Danube over Bali; and if Northstar is
disease-susceptible - that I should have went with that Hungarian cv.
that starts with S, as a replacement for.
