Northline represents the true saskatoon originally found near Beaverlodge, Alberta, Canada. Fruits are very good quality for fresh eating. This selection is too far south here as it suffers from certain apple diseases. Applying neem 3-4 times after petal fall greatly improves fruit quality. In a good year the fruits from this selection are one of the top three at our farm. Best to plant in full sun in sandy soil in zones 2 to 4.
