Haskap, a new, appeadling culture for North America, is especially adapted for northern zones. Ripe berries have unique flavour, a delicious mix of blueberry, raspberry and blackberry. The powder blue to dark blue, elongated berries grow on a shrub 4-5 feet high when matune. Among the qualities that make it a choice variety for northern climates is its ability to withstand extremely cold temperatures (-47° C for the shrub and -7° C for the flowers), and to remain dormant during short-term warm spells during winter. Some cultivars are suitable for mechanical harvest, for lager volumes, wich helps to reduce manpower costs. Haskap requires cross-pollination for maximum yields. This is an outstanging variety for you to discover.
