We received this large tree selection from seedlings purchased through an east coast nursery (Hess) about 30 years ago. The fruit production is very high making it a favorite of birds. The reddish purple fruit is very sweet and makes a delicious sauce. Our parent tree has produced numerous seedlings now and these are true to type from seed. Produces few seeds but the trees are very vigorous and the fastest growing of any serviceberry we have propagated from seed. Can be pruned easily to a single trunk.
