Saskatoon Berry Plant or ServiceberryBy Brian Crawford CC BY-SA 2.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Amalanchier Alnifolia

Shrubbing, self-pollinating deciduous plant growing to a maximum height of 5m with most specimens typically pruning well at 2-3M. Serves as both a superbly prolific edible hedge and ornamental landscape feature with its clumping form, abundant wraith-like flowers and bronze fall foliage. Extremely cold tolerant, the saskatoon will withstand sub zero temperatures and tolerate a range of soil types, even those of poor quality. Extremely productive, a single bush can produce upwards of a thousand berries per season. Berries, which resemble large blueberries but are actually a sort of pome making them more closely related to apples, ripen simultaneously making for a simple harvest. Flavour is delicious and piquant, reminiscent of blueberries and almonds. They are typically eaten fresh or dried, or are used to make pie fillings of unrivaled flavour. They are rich in manganese, magnesium, iron, phenolics, flavonols, natural sugars, vitamin C,calcium, potassium, copper and carotene.

Saskatoon Berry (Seedling) 7/10

Linton's Edible Fruits
Update: 1053 days 20hrs

Comments: -

Have 3 varieties of Amelanchiers:

A. Canadensis, A. Arborea and A. Alnifolia, the latter being commonly known as Saskatoon Berry. Only A. Arborea has fruited so far and I have found that they will not flower or fruit if in shade so full sun is best.

Last year the birds got them so it is imperative that they are netted before they ripen. Currently have a crop that is still ripening on the tree which is about 1.5 metres high and 3 years old.

Fruiting Months November and December

Planted: 2014

Height 1.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: No
