Canadian Buffaloberry vs Boreal Blizzard Haskap (Honeyberry)

Shepherdia canadensis

Lonicera caerulea Boreal Blizzard

Canadian Buffaloberry
Boreal Blizzard 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.

Boreal Blizzard Haskap has the largest and heaviest berries of any haskap cultivar we offer. Both the plant itself and its berries are robust, making mechanical harvesting more effective.

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.

Boreal Blizzard is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield. Boreal Blizzard is a great companion variety for the Boreal Beauty and Strawberry Sensation.
