I bought a Northstar cherry tree, and assumed it is typically 8-10' tall. The card says it will grow to average 25'. Is this true? I thought all Northstar were a dwarf variety, and I have never heard of them growing that big. Please let me know so I can figure where to plant it. Thanks.

Hmmm.. I think the tag is incorrect. North Star is a large fruited Morello type with thin, light red skin, red flesh, red juice with small freestone. Fruit will turn mahogany if left on the tree. It is a natural dwarf tree 6-12' tall and is self-fruitful. Hardy to -40 oF (-40 oC).
