- n. Plural form of juneberry.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Serviceberries are a berry that is in season, around here anyway, in June (hence, some people call them juneberries) and although they look a lot like blueberries, they are not as intense until cooked (at least not the ones sold at this farmers 'market -- my sister tells me she bought some in Columbus that are quite intense).
The persimmon, the papaw, the mulberry, the haws, the juneberries -- you are likely to find them all, sooner or later, among the nut trees of our members.
Even in winter, juneberries liven the landscape subtly with their smooth, gray bark and neat form.
