• Originated in Canada, one of the most popular varieties of Amelanchier alnifolia with edible fruits; introduced to cultivation in 1952.
  • Grows into a bush up to 4.5 m high and 6 m wide; develops numerous root suckers which help the bush grow wide.
  • When young develops erect sprouts which become arched with age.
  • Blooms moderately late and that is why it is relatively resistant to ground frost in spring.
  • Gives juicy and the sweetest fruits of all Amelanchier varieties, they boast mild taste but contain relatively big and numerous seeds; its fruits are round and grow up to 1.3 cm wide, purple-black in colour and covered with a waxy bloom which makes them look blue-black, they grow gathered in clusters of 7-11; recommended for jams and jellies, can also be enjoyed raw.
  • Its fruits do not ripen at the same time, but a mature bush can give a crop of even up to 7.5 kg; shows a tendency to alternate bearing (gives a more abundant crop every second year) like ‘Honeywood’ and ‘Northline’.
