Saskatoon, serviceberry or Juneberry: by no means my favourite fruit, but worth the time to sample when photographing. Since it’s edible, much has already been written about it online, so I’ll simply suggest some sites today. Amelanchier alnifolia from the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon describes the plant and its ethnobotany. It also notes that a diet of over 35% saskatoon can be fatal to mule deer because of the levels of the cyanogenic glycoside, prunasin, in the plant. Livestock can be similarly affected, though it mentions that poisoning is rare. Interested in other images? The Burke Museum’s page on Amelanchier alnifolia has an excellent set.
