I planted a North Star sour cherry tree four years ago. Last year it gave me 2-3 quarts of cherries, so I have high hopes for a big harvest this summer.
I have a couple of hand-held cherry/olive pitters, but they didn't work very well with the relatively small sour cherries. I tried a few other pitting methods that I'd read about - like using a bobby pin - but ended up crushing the cherries and losing too much juice.
There are a few threads about the automatic or bulk-type pitters in the archives, but I didn't see that sour cherries were specifically mentioned. Does anyone have a pitter that works well for them on these little cherries?
