Lovely. We have this growing as native in our forests, but there is also the larger fruited Canadian Saskatoon version grown commercially. I love especially a fruit pie / cobbler made of these, the seeds give a sophisticated bitter almond flavor (cyanide precursor in them, harmless when eaten in moderate quantities).
Jam is delicious too.
But the birds love these - Saskatoon farms have all their trees covered with fine netting and one has to get there inside to pick them

These ones I found are a little smaller than a blueberry, maybe even half the size of a grocery store blueberry. I don't find the seeds offensive, they're not hard, just like a little piece of almond or sunflower seed in your berry.

Yum! Reminds me most of blackberry jam. So many names, I chose Juneberry because it fit on the labels better.

Ended up with 8 8oz jars and 4.75 4 oz jars.

Well, that was fast work! The jam on toast looks delicious! Wish I had me some of that.
Good job!

Another rarely used name for this berry is Shadblow.



I have one small plant in my garden (a Lee #8). It has a few berries this year, which I plan on planting the harvested seed, if the birds don't beat me to them.

I got berries on my native Amelanchiers for the first time this year! The berries are juicier than my blueberries, but bland. I grew them from 4- inch pots and they are now in 3-gallon pots.

I also have another variety I got at a scion exchange (as tiny seedlings) that is supposed to be much better tasting.
