Thiessen Saskatoon
Goji Berry

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 for its taller tree-like shape and much larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Goji Berry is a woody, deciduous perennial known for its hearty, bright orange-red berries. Goji Berry typically produces light lavender flowers from June through September, with fruit maturation taking place between August and October. Goji Berries are delicious, believed to be nutrient rich, high in antioxidants, and often called a super fruit.

Many describe their flavour as being like a tart cherry tomato.

Goji has a very unusual growth habit where it is somewhat like a vine, but also very much a tree. Many growers remark on its unusual and attractive qualities with the purple flowers and bright red berries contributing to its appeal.
