Serviceberries are found across North America, Europe and Asia. They can be found in the wild, but often are planted as ornamentals for their masses of showy, white flowers in early spring and colorful fall foliage. Also known as Juneberry, saskatoon, sarvis or sarvistree, shadblow, shadbush, and mountain blueberry.
The serviceberry looks like a blueberry but has a much thicker skin. They can be eaten fresh, baked in pies or other desserts, canned, or made into wine, jams, or preserves. A successful pie requires you to cooks the berries and provide a thickening agent so the pie holds together.
