‘Borealis’ Haskap

Borealis is noted for yielding very large fruit with excellent flavour. Its fruit has a softer, more delicate fruit than Tundra. Borealis is an ideal option for U-Pick operations or for the home gardener. Requires cross pollination. Compatible with Aurora, Berry Blue, Boreal Blizzard and Honeybee.

This University of Saskatchewan introduction produces blueberry-like fruit that ripens as early as Strawberries. 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.
