Highbush Cranberry

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. Thiessen saskatoons are one of the most productive saskatoons great in pies, preserves or eating fresh. However, they are most popular with u-pick operations because their height gets to about 16ft tall which is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce to serve with various proteins. Consider buying one for your next home landscaping project.
