These Northline Saskatoons are Amelanchier alnifolia.
Similar to blueberries, the fruit hangs in clusters, from spreading bushes. these are not to be confused with the smaller Serviceberries (amelanchier canadensis).
A great fruit for cooler areas as it’s not recommended to plant these in areas warmer than zone 6. Tolerant to a wide variety of soil types and various ranges of pH levels. Not as picky as blueberries in this manner, but still ensure they have good drainage and good compost for best production.
Huge health benefits. High in vitamins, antioxidents, and phenolic compounds. Taste is similar to sweet cherries with a hint of almond.
Northline is a slightly pear shaped berry with a good balanced sweet/tart flavor. Bears at a young age. Self-fertile variety. Plants should be spaced 4 to 5 feet apart.
Best pollination with 2 varieties.
