Borealis Haskap
Indigo Treat Haskap

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. We recommend a 'pollinator' variety, such as Aurora, Honeybee or Berry Blue Honeyberry, be planted at a suitable ratio and proximity to boost fruit production.

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

Indigo Treat, 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. Many experts suggest the highest Haskap yield comes from fields planted with the most varieties.

Due to stronger interest in newer cultivars, 2015 will be our last year selling Indigo Treat.
