Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry) vs Borealis Haskap

Amelanchier alnifolia Thiessen

Lonicera caerulea Borealis

Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Borealis Haskap

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. It is one of the most productive saskatoon varieties. Its fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is popular with U-Picks and home owners because of its taller tree-like shape and larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards as it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Borealis Haskap is a popular variety of the hardy haskap shrub that produces delicious blue fruit. Haskaps, or honeyberries as they are sometimes called, are excellent for fresh eating and cooking. Borealis is a popular variety of haskap because of its large sweet berries.

It's a very cold hardy, fast-growing shrub that begins producing an abundance of fruit in as few as three years. Borealis, like the Tundra Haskap, does not self-pollinate well.

Borealis is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
