Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)

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.

Blue Treasure Haskap is a late season cultivar, ideal for cooler climates, and a favorite from Berries Unlimited. The berries are delectably sweet and ideal for fresh eating, but can also be made into jam, juice, and wine.

Blue Treasure is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Kawai is a great companion variety.
