Producing amongst some of the largest and earliest fruits of any Saskatoon variety, ‘Thiessen’ displays attractive white flowers in spring followed by reliable crops of large, dark purple berries in mid-June that have a wonderful sharp, tangy flavour and are excellent for eating fresh, or for cooking.  In autumn, the foliage takes on spectacular yellow shades before leaf fall.

‘Thiessen’ has an upright, spreading habit and will reach a maximum height and spread of approximately 3-4.5m (10-15ft), but this can be kept down if required.  It is best grown in any good well-drained, moisture retentive soil, in full sun to partial shade and is fully hardy, although like most Saskatoons it flowers early so it is best to avoid planting it in a frost pocket. 

‘Thiessen’ is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner.

Plants are supplied in 7 litre pots and are available for despatch from November 2021.
