Sweet Blue Juneberry

Pot, 3-6" SBJU_3-6 $7.75 Out of stock
Reliable - Sweet Blue Fruit up to 1/2 inch in size

Found as a chance seedling in northern Michigan this selection produces much more fruit than the Canadian selections with a mild sweet flavor. 1/2 inch size fruits are produced in loose clusters. This seedling was selected from a plant that did not fit the normal species found in northern Michigan. We are still not sure what species it might be. It even runners a little bit and is more of a bush than a tree. Flowers are similar to the saskatoon. The fruit quality is the best with just the right balance of tart and sweet.
