Introduced to Northern Michigan over the last ten years, Saskatoon’s are quickly becoming noticed for their “Super Fruit” qualities as a high Anti-Oxidant berry and deliciously unique flavor. Saskatoon berries are purplish-blue in color and grow on bushes. They look much like a blueberry, but since they are a relative of the apple family, their flavor has a subtle sweetness and a hint of almond. Saskatoon berries are eaten fresh or can be utilized in juice, jams, sauces and in pie. They freeze well for your winter-time cooking, as well (or just toss them in your pancakes or oatmeal). Saskatoon’s usually ripen in early July and be available for around two weeks.
