Aurora Haskap
Boreal Beauty Haskap

Aurora Haskap produces great tasting berries. Their taste is a cross between raspberry and blueberry. The berries can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. The haskap berries are high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.

Aurora is a pollinator variety that causes other varieties to have a higher yield when planted together. Borealis and Aurora have similar taste but differ in the size and shape of the fruit. Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.

Boreal Beauty is a haskap variety with several distinct features. It ripens a month later in the year than other haskaps. It produces large berries that are well suited to mechanical harvesting. It also has strong branches to hold up heavy berries.

As part of the "Boreal" series from the University of Saskatchewan, this variety pairs well with other Boreals. The "Beauty" and "Beast" varieties make an excellent combination for assisting pollination.

A staff favourite, the Boreal Beauty 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.
