Haskap, a new, appealing 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 mature. Among the qualities that make it a choice variety for northern climates is its ability to withstand extremely cold temperature (-47 °C for 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 larger volumes, wich helps to reduce manpower costs. Haskap requires cross-pollination for maximum yields. This is an outstanding variety for you to discover.

Boreal Blizzard

*Licensed variety*

New in 2017. This special, improved cultivar produces fruits that are nearly twice as large as those of the Tundra cultivars, weighing between 2.8 and 3.9 gr. The exceptional taste of the sweet and spicy berries, as well as their size and fleshiness, has sparked a lot of interest among hybridizers. This late-season cultivar’s berries are firm, making them suitable for mechanical harvest. This robust plant is resistant to mould and sunscald, and yields excellent harvests later in the season than the Indigo series.
