Berry Blue Honeyberry (Haskap)
Boreal Blizzard 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.

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. The larger berries make them ideal for sale without processing, as larger berries usually sell for more.

Boreal Blizzard blooms later than other haskaps, prolonging the stay of bees in orchards. This bush is part of the "Boreal" series from the University of Saskatchewan. It pairs well with other Boreals, particularly the Boreal Beast pollinator variety.

The Boreal Blizzard is one of the first larger berried varieties set to completely change the Haskap industry. This variety is an excellent choice for U-picks and commercial harvester type orchards.
