Highbush Cranberry
Boreal Beast Haskap

Highbush Cranberry produces attractive white flowers in late June and bears edible fruit that matures to a bright red colour in the late summer.

This shrub, native to much of Canada, is fast growing, and its fruit can be eaten raw or cooked into a sauce.

Boreal Beast is a haskap cultivar designed to be planted with other "Boreal" cultivars.

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 Beast is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Boreal Beast is a great companion variety for the Boreal Beauty Haskap.
