Do you happen to know the nursery source of your favorite trees?
And what mature size(s) are your trees?

Gang:

Over the years I have ordered a few NorthStar cherry trees...interesting the
variability in the trees.  There are notable differences in the quality and
quantity of fruit, in the ripening dates, and in the size of the trees.
Currently I have 9 trees and two are identical in habit and form, with less
desirable characteristics than the others.  The best of these is in its
third year and yielded 25 half pints of cherries, averaging 3/4 inch in
diameter, and about 3/4 the size of typical Bing, left on the tree, the turn
into a delicious and ridiculously juicy sweet tart flavor and alll this of a
tree that if 4 ft tall.  Amazing.  

I cannot sing the praises enough of these tree as landscape specimens and
for care free maintenance.  I have never fertilized mine and the 15 year old
specimens just keep on producing.  

Anyways, back to pitting (using a paper clip, I do about 20 half pints an
hour).
