Saskatoon Berry

Saskatoon berry, Amelanchier alnifolia, is a fruit tree native to the prairies. The fruit looks like the blueberry but is more closely related to the apple family. Like apples, the fruit is sweet right from the tree but continues to ripen after picking, becoming sweeter with a fruitier flavour. Saskatoons are self- pollinizing and ripen late June to early July. They grow in  a variety of soils and conditions to about 4m (14 feet) tall and 2m (7 feet) wide.

Saskatoon berries are rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants that assist in preventing chronic health problems.

They are hardy from zone 2-7.

Saskatoon Seedling Image
Saskatoon Seedling

Our Saskatoon seedlings are grown from the seed of ‘Northline’ Saskatoon. Seedlings are variable but we chose this seed selection because the parent seldom gets over 8 feet in height, which makes it ideal for U-Pick orchards and over-row harvester equipment. The uniform ripening of the berries in full clusters and the desirable sweet taste also make this variety a favorite. Saskatoons are hardy from zone 2b-7.
