Boreal Beauty Haskap

Sea Buckthorn is a shrub that produces attractive berries high in vitamin C.

While we can't confirm claims that the berries are effective in treating various ailments, many people believe consuming the berries helps with arthritis, infections, and asthma, among other things.

Because Sea Buckthorn plants have attractive pale silvery-green leaves, dense branches, and large thorns, people like to grow them in ornamental hedges or as a first row in a shelterbelt.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Very popular with permaculture types who use the nitrogen fixing properties of this plant to benefit other nearby fruits.

Note: these plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.

Boreal Beauty is a haskap variety with several distinct features. It ripens a month later in the year than other haskaps. It produces large berries that are well suited to mechanical harvesting. It also has strong branches to hold up heavy berries.

As part of the "Boreal" series from the University of Saskatchewan, this variety pairs well with other Boreals. The "Beauty" and "Beast" varieties make an excellent combination for assisting pollination.

A staff favourite, the Boreal Beauty is one of the first larger berried varieties set to completely change the Haskap industry. This variety is an excellent choice for U-picks and commercial harvester type orchards.
