Saskatoon Serviceberry - Amelanchier Alnifolia - 10 Seeds - Fruit Tree
Sorry, this item is out of stock
Amelanchier alnifolia or Saskatoon Serviceberry . Featuring slender pinkish buds that turn to 1 inch white flowers blooming so profusely that the branches are obscured by their feathery petals. The blooms are reminiscent of the witch hazel. Deciduous, ranging in height to 35 feet and up to 20 feet wide, the Serviceberry begins its annual growth cycle with these flowers even before the leaves sprout in their shades of silver or red which turn to green. These plentiful red-purple fruit are sweet and juicy, soft in texture and often said to be similar in taste to apples. This is quite natural, as they are a member of the apple family. The fruits are about 1/4-1/2 inch in diameter with 2-5 very small seeds in the pear or apple-like core.
