Northline Saskatoon is a native shrub that's famous for its great-tasting fruit. The berries are terrific for fresh eating and cooking. The Saskatoon bush itself can be quite large and produces an abundance fruit. Saskatoons are hardy and can tolerate partial shade and a variety of growing conditions.
The Northline Saskatoon is popular because it seldom gets over 8 feet in height which makes it ideal for U-Pick orchards and over-row harvester equipment. The uniform ripening of the berries in full clusters and the desirable sweet taste also make this variety a favourite.
