Saskatoon (Juneberry) 'Smoky'
A very heavy cropping variety that is both hardy and reliable. It produces a mass of striking white flowers in spring followed by extremely sweet and juicy, medium to large blue/purple fruits around six weeks later. It flowers/fruits about a week earlier than our other Saskatoon variety ‘Northline’.
'Smoky' will reach a maximum height and spread of approximately 3-4m (9-13ft), but this can be kept down if required. It is best grown in any good well-drained, moisture retentive soil, in full sun to partial shade and is fully hardy, although like most Saskatoons it flowers early so it is best to avoid planting it in a frost pocket.
‘Smoky’ is and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if it is grown with another variety of Saskatoon.
