Saskatoon Berry : LEE 3 (4-8'') plant


76 in stock

Fruit growing success on the Canadian prairies owes a great deal to the passionate, lifelong efforts of the late Lloyd Lee. Among the numerous new varieties he developed at his home in Barrhead, north of Edmonton, were several saskatoons, the best of which are now known as Lee 3 and Lee 8. In addition to excellent flavour and compact bush size, Lee 3 is distinguished by it's early ripening, which extends the saskatoon season. Matures at only 1.5-2m (5-6')

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
