Brief Summary

Read full entry
Juneberry begins and ends the season spectacularly: it is one of the first trees to blossom exuberantly with small white flowers in the spring and its leaves turn a burning red color in the autumn. It was originally imported from North America, cultivated in Drente and grew wild. Nowadays this specific species is no long found in southwestern Canada, its place of origin! It grows along the edges of woods and in areas where trees have been felled. The flowers produce full clusters of sweet, purplish-red berries, already appearing in June. They are a delicacy for birds and people alike. The dried berries used to be added as currants in pastries.
