Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry) vs Honeoye Strawberry

Amelanchier alnifolia Thiessen

Fragaria x ananassa Honeoye


Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Honeoye Strawberry

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.

The Honeoye Strawberry is a cold-hardy cultivar that produces large, sweet berries that feature an attractive bright-red color. It blooms with small white flowers and commonly it is a top-selling berry on the market due to its winter hardiness, highly productive crops and self-pollinating nature.

The Honeoye Strawberry is a June Bearing (Short Day) variety, meaning that they typically produce a single, large crop earlier in the season.

The Honoeye Strawberry received the Garden Merit Award of the Royal Horticultural society.
