Beaked Hazelnut
Strawberry Sensation Haskap (Honeyberry)

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.

Note: You want more than one hazelnut to improve yields.

Strawberry Sensation Haskap is a new cultivar from Berries Unlimited that is getting lots of attention. These haskaps have a unique flavor that range from sweet to tart with an alpine strawberry after taste. This highly productive shrub produces haskaps late season and are ideal for freezing or fresh eating.

Haskaps benefit from an additional pollinator of a different variety to produce higher fruit yields. Strawberry Sensation Haskap will pair with Blue Treasure or Boreal Blizzard Haskap. Expect to see good yields in the fourth or fifth year of growth.
