Thiessen Saskatoon

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.

Martin Saskatoon is a hardy prairie plant. The berries have a large size and a delicious taste. This species has consistent yield, making it great for both orchards and small gardens. The berries ripen uniformly, making them convenient for machine harvesting.
