HASKAP

Cold Hardy Plants

Ready for just about anything winter can throw at it. Flowers tolerate -7 C with no damage. 

Easy to Grow

Haskap will tolerate a wide range of soil types and conditions.  Little maintenance is required after established.

Exceptional Fruit

Berry has exceptional flavour, often described as a mix of tastes between a Blueberry and a Raspberry.  Very healthy fruit that is high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

HOW ARE HASKAP POLLINATED?

Unlike Cherry and Saskatoon Berry, Haskap plants are not self-pollinating.  This means that you will need a minimum of 2 compatible varieties for adequate pollination.  Compatible varieties share two things in common:


1) They must be distally related

2) They must have a bloom time that has significant overlap
