Snowberry vs Aurora Haskap

Symphoricarpos albus

Lonicera caerulea Aurora



Aurora Haskap

Snowberry is a small deciduous shrub with characteristic white to pink flowers and clusters of white fruit.

This North American native species is very adaptable, and can be used for erosion control in riparian and restoration areas. Snowberry's fruit attracts wildlife, and livestock can consume the berries without issue.

This new University of Saskatchewan release is a great tasting berry bush. The bushes fruit in late June and the berry taste has been compared to raspberry and blueberry. The fruit can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. The fruit is high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.

Aurora is a pollinator variety that causes other varieties to have a higher yield when planted together. Borealis and Aurora have similar taste but differ in the size and shape of the fruit. Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
