Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry) vs Boreal Beast Haskap

Amelanchier alnifolia Thiessen

Lonicera caerulea Boreal Beast

Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Boreal Beast 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.

Boreal Beast is a haskap cultivar designed to be planted with other "Boreal" cultivars.

Haskaps have a taste that is a cross between raspberry and blueberry. The berries can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. Haskaps are high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.


Boreal Beast is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Boreal Beast is a great companion variety for the Boreal Beauty Haskap.
