Red Elderberry
Strawberry Sensation Haskap (Honeyberry)

Red Elderberry is an attractive, medium-sized deciduous shrub.

It produces clusters of white flowers in the spring and bright red berry-like drupes, which provide beautiful contrast against its coarse, textured green foliage.

Red Elder can be pruned as a small single or multi-stemmed tree.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

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.
