Categories: Fruit Tree
Red fruit with a small stone. Very productive. A sour pie cherry. Blooms in early May. Since birds love to eat cherries, the tree will need to be covered with netting as soon as the ripening fruit shows the slightest amount of red color. The tree is very precocious & usually will start bearing fruit the 2nd season from planting.
One of the parents of North Star is English Morello (noted for its extremely dark fruit). This trait was passed on to North Star. While many other tart cherry cultivars have a dark skin, the actual flesh of their fruit is light pink or yellow, which results in a poorly colored pie.
