NORTHERN STAR CHERRY WINE
The North Star Cherry is an excellent cherry for a dry wine. It is a sour cherry parented by a Siberian cherry and an English Morello. It has thin, red skin, red flesh, and red juice with a small, freestone pit making them reasonably easy to de-stone. Pick the cherries at the height of ripeness and pit them immediately. A cherry pitter makes the job faster, but they are not difficult to de-stone by hand.
