Thiessen Saskatoon
Crimson Passion Cherry

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.

The Crimson Passion Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid dwarf Sour Cherry. This medium-sized self-pollinator produces tart, bright red fruits in large clusters in late summer that are perfect for jams, pies and jellies. Crimson Passion Cherry is ideal as a landscape or orchard tree.
