Aurora Haskap
Red Bounty Raspberry

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.

Red Bounty Raspberry is a hardy, self-fertile variety that produces large, red berries with great taste ideal for preserves, jam, and fresh eating. Prune this shrub each spring to encourage new fruit production. Red Bounty Raspberry stands on its own - no trellis required.
