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.


Produces the largest yield of the Western* cultivars with mild sweet berries on a large shrub. Upright grower that suckers profusely. Large, mild-flavoured berries. Yield registered at Lake Saint-Jean (Quebec) over 3 years (2007 to 2009) : 2,400 to 8,800 kg/ha.
