Juneberry or not?

freetobehis(5)June 22, 2014

How do I know if this is a juneberry tree or the kind of tree with uneatable berries?? I have pics of two trees. The berries are slightly different. Tree #1 what do you think it is? I don't think it's a Juneberry but don't know.

This is the other tree, the berries look a little more like juneberries but the tree also isn't as healthy either.

Sure looks like serviceberry/juneberry, scientifically known as Amelanchier.

First looks like a Malus to me too.

Well, cut one open and see what the insides of the fruit look like, that will tell.

Me too, me too.
#1 looks like a crab, #2 is juneberry.
Eat one of each; that'll seal the deal - then, go back and eat the rest of the juneberries!
