The most recent acquisition for my cookbook collection (which is admittedly, utterly out of control) has be now interested in Saskatoon/service/Juneberries. (“Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky”)
Technically, I’m zone 6a, although experientially it must be the very fringe because things that aren’t hardy past zone 5 are sketchy at best. I’m in West Michigan with sandy loam that leans toward the alkaline side of things.
Can I reasonably expect to plant some along a fence in full sun and get both berries and a bit of a visual barrier? (At least seasonally)
And what are the best varieties for flavor? Probably mostly in pies/baked good. Sweet/tart profile probably preferably over just super sweet.
