Come one come all….its that tasty time of year for grazing walks along teeming rows of public edibles, the Serviceberries are RIPE!

Amelanchier (am-ə-LAN-sheer), also known as shadbush, shadwood or shadblow, serviceberry or sarvisberry, or just sarvis, juneberry, saskatoon, sugarplum or wild-plum, and…a personal favorite…chuckley pearis a genus of about 20 species of deciduous-leaved shrubs and small trees in the Rose family (Rosaceae).

And, most importantly right now….they’re ripe for the picking in various locations around Asheville and surrounding areas!
