Thiessen Saskatoon
Boreal Beast 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 Beast is a pollinator haskap cultivar, designed to be planted with other "Boreal" cultivars. Putting "Beauty" and the "Beast" together will result in a successful harvest for both.

The bloom season of this cultivar is relatively late, matching the bloom season of Boreal Blizzard. While the berries of the Beast are not as large as the other "Boreals", they do taste great.
