Thiessen Saskatoon
Boreal Beauty Haskap

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.

Boreal Beauty is a haskap variety with several distinct features. It ripens a month later in the year than other haskaps. It produces large berries that are well suited to mechanical harvesting. It also has strong branches to hold up heavy berries.

As part of the "Boreal" series from the University of Saskatchewan, this variety pairs well with other Boreals. The "Beauty" and "Beast" varieties make an excellent combination for assisting pollination.

A staff favourite, the Boreal Beauty is one of the first larger berried varieties set to completely change the Haskap industry. This variety is an excellent choice for U-picks and commercial harvester type orchards.
