Description

Great yields of juicy, blueberry-like fruit produced on very hardy bushes. This native shrub, also known as Service Berries, are very widely adapted but does best in well drained soil. Honeywood is more compact than other varieties. Excellent flavour, great for pies, jam or eating right off the bush. Beautiful orange red fall color.

Care Instructions

Prefers a moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Add moistened peat moss to the planting area and backfill soil when planting.

Fertilize in spring with an all purpose fruit tree fertilizer prior to new growth or topdress with compost. Prune to remove broken or damaged limbs.

Saskatoon berries will begin to bear fruit at 2-4 years after planting.
