Saskatoons are Native to North America, from Alaska across most of western Canada. Incredibly hardy, they are very prolific in the prairie provinces. The berries are used for jams and pies. Many describe the taste of Saskatoon berries as sweet, and almond flavoured. A Saskatoon-raspberry pie is a thing of beauty! They are also highly praised for their antioxidant content, specifically phenolics, flavonols and anthocyanins. Birds are also particularly fond of Saskatoon berries. Amelanchier alnifolia (Saskatoon Berry) produces showy clusters of white flower in early spring.
