[NAFEX] Cherries

I find the "tart" or "pie" cherries such as North Star or Meteor are fine to eat fresh or frozen.  I could eat many more than we manage to freeze each year as a treat directly from the freezer.
I find the sweet cherries from the store to be insipid compared to the North Star and Meteor cherries that we grow.  I wouldn't dismiss pie or tart cherries just because of their name, unless you only like really sweet fruit.  I prefer a tart apple to one that is only sweet, and perhaps my taste differs from other people's (I sure it does as we are not all the same, are we?)

I originally concentrated on sweet cherries as 1) I love them 2) they're incredibly
expensive in the store 3) I prefer fruit that is able to be eaten out of hand 
I've had much better success with Nanking cherries and am considering planting some of the
more 'sweet' tart cherries.  I would consider Dukes, but they seem to have disappeared.  
Any opinions on the different varieties of tarts would be welcome.
