The Salmonberry is a perennial shrub reaching 6 to 10 feet, and grows wild throughout Southeast Alaska, north into Canada, and as far south as northwestern California. It has large, bright pink flowers that prove irresistible to hummingbirds, and orange-gold to deep orange-red fruits that resemble large raspberries. Salmonberries have been an important food for the native people of Southeast Alaska, as well as many of the birds and mammals that call this beautiful place home.
The Salmonberry gets its name from its remarkable resemblance to a cluster of salmon roe. Salmonberry jam is made with succulent whole salmonberries, and is sweet with a touch of tartness; a taste of Southeast Alaska. A very popular flavor. 4 oz.
