Saskatchewan’s Provincial Fruit
Saskatchewan's fruit emblem, the Saskatoon berry or Juneberry, is botanically known as Amelanchier alnifolia. This small, edible fruit is sweet in taste and has long been eaten by Canada's native peoples. The name derives from the Cree noun misâskwatômina. The city of Saskatoon is named after this plant. In 2005, it was recommended that the Saskatoon berry be named as one of the provincial emblems.
