Common Blueberry vs Honeywood Saskatoon

Vaccinium myrtilloides

Amelanchier alnifolia Honeywood

Common Blueberry
no image

Common Blueberry isn't as large, pretty, or high yielding as the other varieties we carry. But Common Blueberry is our only blueberry that will survive in plant hardiness zones 1A to 2B. So if you happen to live in one of these zones, this is the variety for you.

Plus, these August maturing berries are wonderfully flavorful and contain more antioxidants by volume than the highbush varieties. They'll give your baked goods a wonderful pop of flavor.

Note: Blueberries require very specific soil conditions. They need well-drained soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0. If the starting pH of your soil is between 5.1 and 6.2 you can lower it by adding sulfur. We recommend against planting blueberries in soil with a starting pH greater than 6.2. Please do your own research before buying any blueberry plants.

Honeywood Saskatoon, also known as Service Berries, is excellent at producing an abundance of blue-coloured berries in mid-summer and has dark green foliage that turns yellow in the fall. It is quite large making it a perfect shrub in your backyard garden. Often grown for its edible qualities, the Honeywood Saskatoon is quite ornamental with stunning white blooms in the spring.
