Prunus pensylvanica L., Rosaceae
The red fruits of wild pin cherries are tiny, tart, and very tasty. Pin cherries make the best jellies. They are prepared as jams, juices, syrups, and wines. Pin cherries have a long history for their use by the native peoples.
Pin cherries are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C. They provide calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese.
We hand-pick our wild-harvested pin cherries from August through September in northern Saskatchewan.
