If you're looking for a versatile and delicious fruit to add to your garden, the Amelanchier alnifolia, commonly known as the Saskatoon berry or Serviceberry, may be just what you need! This deciduous shrub or small tree can grow up to 20 ft in height, forming clumps or colonies that produce gorgeous white flowers and small purple pomes that ripen in mid-summer. The fruit is soft, juicy, and has a sweet flavor with a hint of apple that is loved by almost everyone who tries it. Saskatoon berries are rich in iron, copper, and essential nutrients like fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. They can be eaten raw, cooked, or dried and are great in pies, jams, wine, cider, beer, or as a healthy snack. This adaptable and hardy shrub is also a common understory plant in forests and is easy to cultivate in many soil types. So why not add some Saskatoon Berries to your garden this season and enjoy the bounty of this amazing fruit!
