Lonicera caerula 'Borealis'
Haskap is the Japanese name for the Edible Blue Honeysuckle -- apparently meaning 'berry of long life and good vision'. The berries resemble large, elongated blueberries. Their flavour is a unique combination of raspberry and blueberry. 'Borealis' is thought to have the largest, best tasting fruit. Shrubs are well-behaved, pest and disease free and exceptionally hardy. Haskap are best grown in full sun and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Important - more than one variety is needed for good berry production. The two varieties we offer are 'good together' and you will need both to have lots of berries.

NOTE: Fruiting shrubs are an easy addition to your perennial border or can be grown in containers.
