The city, Saskatoon (in Saskatchewan, Canada) is named after the berry. It is a perennial deciduous shrub. The ripe juneberry fruit is dark purple, with several tiny soft seeds. These berries serve as a food source for mammals and birds, and the dense growth provides shelter. The shrub has good nutrient levels throughout the year. It is browsed mostly in spring when it provides good forage for cattle, goats, sheep, and wild ungulates. The fruits are eaten fresh and are used while preparing puddings, pies, and muffins. The berries are also dried like raisins and currants.
