Comments:
Bartram’s Chuckley Pear is also known as shadbush, shadwood or shadblow, serviceberry or sarvisberry, wild pear, juneberry, saskatoon, sugarplum or wild-plum, and Amelanchier. This low shrub grows in mountainous, rocky areas and provides attractive, white flowers in the spring. As the year goes on the Chuckley Pear produces deep purple berries that have a sweet taste almost like a plum. While not growing abundantly in most places small patches can sometimes be found to give a welcome fruit source.
