Indigo Treat Haskap
Boreal Blizzard Haskap

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.

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.
