* Fiche détaillée à télécharger


Northline is a medium sized, productive shrub, good for processing and fresh consumption with a spreading habit producing many suckers which offer many choices for rejuvenation of the plant.

Its production is important. It gives fruits at a younger age than other cultivars. Its fruits are large and tasty.

The yields recorded in Lac-Saint-Jean (Quebec) are from 4 400 to 10 800 kg/ha over 3 years (2007 to 2009).


Generalities Saskatoon


The saskatoon tree produces a delicious berry called saskatoon or small pear. This beautiful shrub is native to northern climates. It grows best in a sandy loam where water and air flow well.

The plants bloom heavily in the spring and then in July offer a great profusion of purple to blue-purple berry clusters. The fruits have an increased pectin content and are therefore more suitable for jams and jellies.

This shrub grows best in full sun and its fruits are very popular with birds. The saskatoon will have a better fruit set if another variety is planted nearby. The installation of an irrigation system will optimize the yields, especially in periods of drought.
