Saskatoon Berry Seeds
(Amelanchier alnifolia) Zones 3 - 7. Deciduous Shrub.
The Saskatoon berry is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and higher in fibre and protein than most fruits because the seeds are edible. The fruit is sweet, with dense, juicy flesh and excellent fresh, frozen, or dried. Use it in any recipe that calls for blueberries.
Saskatoon Berry is shade tolerant, but greater sunlight will increase yields. In the wild, it is found in dry woods and open hillsides and prefers well-drained soils but is not finicky about pH. It is self-fertile, but will produce more fruit when grown in groups. It is very cold hardy and should provide a harvest in its third year.
Saskatoons grow 12- 20ft in height and can live for 40 years.
