Nova Raspberry

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.

Taste. That's usually the number one reason people buy the Nova Raspberry.

The Nova Raspberry gets its name from where it was bred, in Nova Scotia. It was created to survive and thrive in the wildly varying climates of Canada, and it does!

This bush toughs it out through the harshest winters and reliably produces large crops in the summer. Nova canes have very few spines. As it has a firmer berry, it is commonly planted for commercial plantings where a harvester is used.

Nova Raspberry produces average sized bright red berries, with a long shelf life and delicious taste.
