Northline is a popular Saskatoon or Juneberry, with a fruity sweet flavour, and one of the most productive.
The fruits ripen evenly at the same time, so the whole tree can usually be harvested in one go.

Northline is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Important: advice about pollination
Northline flowers in mid/late May, but like all Saskatoons is very susceptible to frost damage, so is best planted in a sheltered frost-free area.
Northline grows with a more upright habit than other Saskatoons. If planting several bushes, allow 3m between each one.They should reach a mature height of about 3m or so in the UK.
Do not add fertiliser at the time of planting, but water well, and keep the young bush regularly watered (but not drowing) during the spring. Water should be applied to the base of the stem and the root area, try to avoid letting water splash on to the leaves. Keep weeds and grass well away from the base of the plant.
No pruning is usually required for the first 5 years. After that, prune out some of the older branches each spring, since fruiting is best on younger shoots.
Northline was developed in the 1950s by Beaverlodge Nursery of Beaverlodge, Alberta, Canada.
