ISO: Fresh Saskatoon Berries

Jamie Eats Burgers Oct 5, 2009 06:55 AM

not sure if they can even grow on this side of Canada, but does anyone know where to get fresh saskatoon berries?

    I don't have a source for you, but wanted to let you know that they are also called service berries here, and they definitely grow in the area.

      The season is over for these berries. You can only get them frozen now.
      I got them from a farm in Norfolk County (sorry, can't find the name).

        As TorontoJo says, the season is long past. The serviceberry tree is grown all over Toronto as an ornamental plant. . I have one and so does my neighbour. They tend to be spindly with lots of trunks. Very hard to pick ripe berries as the birds get them.

          Frozen not fresh but having grown up on these pies made in the summer and baked in the winter.. does not make much difference if fresh v frozen.
