The Berry Blue variety is mainly used for cross-pollination and to increase the yield/hectare. This large upright shrub is very vigorous and very productive (4 kilos and more at maturity obtained at the Normandin research center).
Its fruits are elongated and of average size: 1.35 gr. Picked too early, its fruits are somewhat bitter. Picked at maturity (end of July and beginning of August in northern regions), its fruits are excellent and of average size. The shrub can be harvested mechanically.
Haskap, an exciting new crop for North America, is particularly well suited for northern areas. Its unique, complex taste is reminiscent of a tasty blend of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.
Its powder blue to dark blue fruits are elongated and grow on a shrub 4 to 5 feet tall at maturity. Cameos have an extremely high antioxidant value (ORAC) with significant amounts of anthocyanins, polyphenols and bioflavanoids :
The qualities that make it a plant of choice for northern cultivation refer to its high resistance to cold for the shrub (-47 degrees Celsius) and for its flowers (-7 degrees Celsius) as well as its ability to remain dormant during a winter mildness.
The camerisier requires cross-pollination to obtain an optimal yield.
