|Mr. V's Special|
|Big sweet berries due to hybrid vigor!|
|Botanical (latin) name:||Amelanchier alnifolia|
The Saskatoon, also known as the Juneberry and Serviceberry in other parts of Canada, is native to Canada's prairie provinces as well as the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Surprising as it may seem, the Saskatoon is a member of the rose family and is a second cousin to the apples.
Saskatoons were the mainstay food for the prairie aboriginals since prehistoric times and are now treasured for their sweet taste and medicinal properties.
The Mr. V's seedlings are actually a cross between a variety of Saskatoons to produce a large, sweet fleshy berry. Three year old plants will be producing the same year that you will be putting them into your garden, so you will not have to wait around to enjoy their taste sensation.
Mr. V's Saskatoons are self pollinating so one plant will be able to produce berries by itself. Saskatoons like rich well drained soil and exposure to full sun.
