New release from the University of Saskatchewan for 2016!
Also known as Honeyberries or Blue Honeysuckle, Canadian Haskap are superior to any other Honeyberries with sweeter, wild Blueberry flavour and larger, fleshier fruit not unlike oversize Blueberries. The plant themselves are extremely cold tolerant and these are a great fruit alternative for cold climates. Cross-pollination is required.
Boreal Blizzard is one of the first larger berried varieties set to completely change the Haskap industry! It was so named because the fruit size, productivity, and flavour stopped the breeders in their tracks. Berries are more than twice as heavy as ‘Tundra’ or ‘Borealis’. This variety is an excellent choice for home growers, U-picks and commercial harvester type orchards. The first release of the Boreal series that flowers and ripens later than previous UofS cultivars. Compatible with Borealis, Boreal Beast, Honey Bee, Tundra.
