Berry Blue Haskap (Honeyberry)
Ranch Elderberry

Berry Blue Honeyberry is a hardy deciduous shrub. Its fruit is deliciously tart and perfect for fresh eating or production.
Berry Blue is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Aurora is a great companion variety.

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.

Ranch Elderberry is a vigorous and high yielding Black Elderberry cultivar. It ripens earlier than other varieties, and is smaller and more compact making berry harvest easier. The berries are well suited for baked goods, jams, jellies, and syrups. They are high in vitamin C and reported to be beneficial for the immune system. Planting them near other varieties for cross pollination and in full sun will result in higher yields.

Warning: the seeds, stems, leaves, roots, and uncooked berries of the Ranch Elderberry are toxic to humans when eaten in quantity. You should cook the berries to make them safe for human consumption.
