juneberry species [+/-]
Enviroment
Amelanchier Alnifolia, native to western North America, does not require much water to survive once established, but it will appreciate irrigation if you are trying to get it to produce a large crop. Overhead watering should be avoided to prevent disease since it is quite susceptible.

Amelanchier Laevis, Canadensis, and Arborea are native to eastern North America. They need more water than A. Alnifolia to survive. They are better adapted to wet conditions, so disease is less of a problem for them.

Juneberries can produce a decent crop in partial shade, but the lack of sun encourages disease.
Pollination
self-fertile
Yield
stems between the ages of 2-4 years old are the most productive.
Soil
Preferred pH: 6.0 to 7.0. Acceptable pH: 4.5 to 8.0.
Other
● Juneberries are also commonly called Saskatoons or Serviceberries.
● Many Juneberry cultivars were bred for decoration instead of fruit quality.
● Amelanchier Alnifolia is the most common species grown for its fruit.
