Saskatoon berry

Amelanchier produces delicious berries known as Saskatoon berries. This variety is well adapted to our harsh climate. Drought tolerant, grows well in heavy soil. The berries, ranging in colour from violet-blue to purple, are high in pectin and ideal for jam and jelly making. This shrub prefers full sun and is a good bird landscaping choice. The Amelanchier settles in better when another variety is planted near by.


This is a seedling of Thiessen; it possesses all of its qualities, but with more uniform fruit ripening. Produces large, delicious berries.
