Beaked Hazelnut vs Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Corylus cornuta

Rubus Souris

Beaked Hazelnut
Souris Raspberry (an improved Boyne)

Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Souris is an improved version of Boyne, the classic prairie raspberry. It is planted all across Canada and is extremely robust. Where other raspberry cultivars rely on unique selling points and specializations, Souris is just generally a great raspberry.


Souris is cold hardy and resistant to disease and spider mites. Its berries are delicious and colourful, great for U-pick operations, fresh eating, or using in products such as jams and pies.


Souris canes are 3-5 feet tall, sturdy, and floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.
