Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations. But it is not the best choice for berry farming because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.
