Species: Amelanchier alnifolia

History: Martin was grown by Dieter Martin in Saskatchewan. He selected this variety for its large berries and uniform ripening time.

Why We Grow It: Martin produces deep purple berries that are both flavourful and juicy! The berries are on the larger size and ripen at more or less the same time, making them a good choice for mechanized picking.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 2

Soil Preference: Anything but clay

Growth Habits: Shrub grows to 3m tall, has a compact and upright growth habit

Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade (approx. 6-10 hours of sun daily)

Pollination: Self-pollinating, this variety will produce fruit without a different variety of Saskatoon berry but will produce more and better fruit if one is present

Bloom Colour: White

Ripens: June

Storage: Keeps 1-2 weeks when stored in the fridge

Recommended Use: Fresh eating, baking, preserving

Size: 1 year plant in 2.5" plug, about 5 cm above soil (this is a compact cultivar, and Saskatoon bushes are notoriously slow growing compared to most berries)
