Borealis Haskap
no image

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.

Honeywood Saskatoon, also known as Service Berries, is excellent at producing an abundance of blue-coloured berries in mid-summer and has dark green foliage that turns yellow in the fall. It is quite large making it a perfect shrub in your backyard garden. Often grown for its edible qualities, the Honeywood Saskatoon is quite ornamental with stunning white blooms in the spring.
