Saskatoons are shrubs that bear blueberry-like edible fruit. Popular in Canada, this superfood, a powerful antioxidant, is gaining the interest of US growers, who know it by other names like juneberry, serviceberry, and shadbush. Learn how to grow this up-and-coming berry by reading how to select the best growing site and cultivar; how to prepare the site; and about the best planting, watering, fertilization, pruning, weed control, pest control, disease control, and harvesting practices to use.
