Berry Blue Honeyberry (Haskap)
Indigo Gem Haskap

Berry Blue Honeyberry is a hardy deciduous shrub. Its fruit is deliciously tart and perfect for fresh eating or production. This fast-growing variety blooms early and becomes dormant earlier than other varieties. Berry Blue Honeyberry makes a great pollinator for Borealis, Tundra or the Indigo varieties.

Haskap is the Japanese name for these berries and this term has been adopted for the University of Saskatchewan varieties. In other areas they are more commonly known as Honeyberry which is why we call this Eastern European variety Honeyberry.

Indigo Gem has fruit similar in size and firmness to the Tundra variety, making it suitable for commercial production or your home garden.

Indigo Gem, like the Borealis Haskap, does not self-pollinate well. We recommend another variety, such as Honeybee or Berry Blue Honeyberry, be planted at a minimum 1:8 ratio with it to boost fruit production.
