Saskatoons grow wild in Canada from the wind swept prairies to the cold northern forests of Quebec and Ontario. The varieties we sell are selections that have larger, sweeter fruit. Thiessen and Martin varieties produce very large berries while the Smokey and Honeywood varieties are chosen for their sweet, flavourful fruit. These 4 varieties grow as small multi-stemmed trees(shrub) of approx 3 m(10 ft). For a smaller( 1 m) bush we offer the Regent and Isaac varieties which also have very tasty fruit. Saskatoon fruit are ready to harvest in late June/early July when berries turn from green to dark red very quickly. Saskatoons make great fresh eating as well as delicious pies with an fruity almond flavour. This native fruit tree is very hardy( zone 2) and easy to grow in any type of soil. Great commercial crop for organic growers..we have someone to buy all your fruit!
