Variety description

Amelanchier alnifolia 'Martin' - the earliest and largest Saskatoonberry

Advantages Amelanchier alnifolia 'Martin' - the earliest and largest Saskatoonberry

  • earliest flowering period of any Saskatoon berry
  • very fruitful
  • more uniform maturity than other varieties"

The Saskatoon berry 'Martin' is a very common variety in commercial cultivation. It is originally a chance seedling of 'Thiessen'. Like these, 'Martin' is considered the largest-fruiting of all Saskatoon berry varieties. The quite uniform ripeness is an advantage in commercial cultivation. 'Martin' is also the earliest flowering of all Saskatoon berries. However, in locations where there is a risk of late frost, it can make sense to use 'Saskalate'.

Like all service pear trees, Saskatoonberry 'Martin' grows as a stiffly upright, small-leaved shrub. The cultivar 'Martin' reaches a height of 2-4 meters. Rock pear trees are mainly used for wild hedges, but are also very attractive as solitaires, especially when they are in bloom. The Saskatoon berries, botanically Amelanchier alnifolia, originally come from North America and are completely hardy.
