Canadian Buffaloberry vs Borealis Haskap (Honeyberry)

Shepherdia canadensis

Lonicera caerulea Borealis

Canadian Buffaloberry
Borealis Haskap (Honeyberry)

Canadian Buffalo Berry is a native deciduous shrub found throughout North America. This hardy, medium-sized shrub will tolerate poor soil conditions and produces attractive, edible–though very bitter–red fruit.

Borealis Haskap is a popular variety of the hardy haskap shrub that produces delicious blue fruit. Haskaps, or honeyberries as they are sometimes called, are excellent for fresh eating and cooking. Borealis is a popular variety of haskap because of its large sweet berries.

It's a very cold hardy, fast-growing shrub that begins producing an abundance of fruit in as few as three years. Borealis, like the Tundra Haskap, does not self-pollinate well.

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