Grown for its lovely, edible fruit, Amelanchier alnifolia 'Forestburg' has masses of edible & sweet, dark blue berries in late June or early July. These fruit appear later in the summer than those of the similar Amelanchier alnifolia 'Smokey' and can be eaten straight of the tree or used in cooking, jams or jellies.

Amelanchier alnifolia 'Forestburg' is self fertile and has masses of white flower in spring. The leaves are dark green and can turn shades of red and purple in the autumn but they do not have quite the vivid colours of some of the other selections listed here.
