Common Blueberry vs Boreal Beauty Haskap

Vaccinium myrtilloides

Lonicera caerulea Boreal Beauty

Common Blueberry
Boreal Beauty Haskap

Common Blueberry is an August maturing berry that is wonderfully flavorful and contain more antioxidants by volume than the highbush varieties.
They'll give your baked goods a wonderful pop of flavor.

It isn't as large, pretty, or high yielding as the other varieties we carry. But Common Blueberry is one of the only blueberries that will survive in plant hardiness zones 1A to 2B.

Note: Blueberries require very specific soil conditions. They need well-drained soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0.

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.
