Description

This University of Saskatchewan introduction produces blueberry-like fruit that ripens before 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. Cross-pollination is required.

Honey Bee is utilized for a pollinizer of most varieties, however still produces a suitable crop. Berries are slightly tart and have an ability to ‘hang-on’ to the plant to reduce drop when ripe. Very suitable for home growers and U-pick, but not mechanical harvesting. Bushes are upright and vigorous, with resistance to leaf powdery mildew. Compatible with Aurora, Borealis, Boreal Beast, Boreal Blizzard, and Tundra.

#1 potted.
