Borealis Haskap
Strawberry Sensation Haskap (Honeyberry)

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.

Strawberry Sensation Haskap is a new cultivar from Berries Unlimited that is getting lots of attention. These haskaps have a unique flavor that range from sweet to tart with an alpine strawberry after taste. This highly productive shrub produces haskaps late season and are ideal for freezing or fresh eating.

Haskaps benefit from an additional pollinator of a different variety to produce higher fruit yields. Strawberry Sensation Haskap will pair with Blue Treasure or Boreal Blizzard Haskap. Expect to see good yields in the fourth or fifth year of growth.
