Aurora Haskap produces great tasting berries with 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.

Aurora is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
