The Saskatoons rival Blueberries in Nutrition?

 

Our First Nations people valued the saskatoon as an important part of their diet and shared this wonderful legacy with our early settlers.  A true native fruit, it has been improved upon by selecting the finest specimens from wild stands and cultivating them.

The saskatoon (Amelanchier alnifolia) is a member of the rose family (Rosaceae) and is actually a pome, a very small apple (subfamily Pomoideae) for all you botany enthusiasts. Saskatoons rival blueberries in nutritional value as well, so eat and preserve plenty as they are as good for you as they taste.

Did you know that animals LOVE saskatoons too! Birds, deer, and moose and even coyotes eat saskatoons.
