Boreal Beauty produces large berries that are well suited to mechanical harvesting. It also has strong branches to hold up heavy berries.

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.


This variety is an excellent choice for U-picks and commercial harvester type orchards.

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