Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Seascape 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 Seascape Strawberry is a cold-hardy perennial that produces large, sweet cherry-red berries that are usually ready for harvest from late spring to early fall. This variety is an Everbearing (Day Neutral) strawberry with small white flowers. It is typically more productive than other cold hardy strawberries.
The Seascape Strawberry is a self-pollinating variety, meaning it does not require a second plant nearby to set fruit. This plant produces an above average number of runners that grow quickly into new plants.
