Oh my-- I think serviceberries have a good flavor--not as strong as fresh
blueberry or Rocky Mountain huckleberry but are tasty and juicy. They do
vary in flavor and texture and some are great and others are good.(referring
to berries in northern Montana and Northern California and the hybrid ones
are great too.)

According to Arthur Lee Jacobson "native trees to Seattle" there are
two native species of Black hawthornes. One hot summer day in
Wilsonville OR I pulled off the road in a traffic jam and started
eating the ecotype one that has the longer spines and slightly
fleshier fruit. There was not much to taste (very weak) but at
least you can see from my image they are were juicy. I would
compare them to the fruit of seviceberry but the fruit a little
Longspine Black Hawthorne:

The other closely related species are "shortspine" black hawthornes
of which I have been able to find in Camas WA, but none of any of
which compare in production or flesh quantity to the previously
mentioned "longspines".
