Has large fruit that is 1 cm across, dark purple in colour, and will ripen in July. Nelson has fewer seeds and a nice tangy flavour. The plant has white blooms in spring, flowering 3-7 days later than other cultivars, which helps avoid late spring frost; its fall colour is orange-red. Saskatoons are also known to have a life span of 50 years and are a very hardy fruit for our prairies!
