Common Snowberry
Boreal Blizzard Haskap

Common 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.

Note: This difficult to grow species is not regularly scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. If you don't seedlings available for purchase, try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Boreal Blizzard Haskap has the largest and heaviest berries of any haskap cultivar we offer. Both the plant itself and its berries are robust, making mechanical harvesting more effective.

Haskaps have a taste that is a cross between raspberry and blueberry. The berries can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. Haskaps are high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.

Boreal Blizzard is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Boreal Blizzard is a great companion variety for the Boreal Beauty and Strawberry Sensation.
