Boreal Beast Haskap
Nova Raspberry

Boreal Beast is a pollinator haskap cultivar designed to be planted with other "Boreal" cultivars. Putting "Beauty" and the "Beast" together will result in a successful harvest for both.

The bloom season of this cultivar is relatively late, matching the bloom season of Boreal Blizzard. While the berries of the Beast are not as large as the other "Boreals", they do taste great.

Taste. That's usually the number one reason people buy the Nova Raspberry.

The Nova Raspberry gets its name from where it was bred, in Nova Scotia. It was created to survive and thrive in the wildly varying climates of Canada, and it does!

This bush toughs it out through the harshest winters and reliably produces large crops in the summer. Nova canes have very few spines. As it has a firmer berry, it is commonly planted for commercial plantings where a harvester is used.

Nova Raspberry produces average sized bright red berries, with a long shelf life and delicious taste.
