Boreal Beast Haskap
Russian White Mulberry

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.

Russian White Mulberry is a cold hardy and adaptable tree. It is a great choice for the impatient gardener as it reaches its mature height in a short period of time and has an attractive, dense, and rounded form.

Odd looking berries are produced among a backdrop of glossy, deep green foliage. The blackberry-esque berries ripen slowly over the season, ranging in color from white, pink, and purple-violet. While the berries are not well regarded for fresh eating, they have made tasty jams and preserves.
