Haskap Berries

One of my new favorite plants is my haskap bush. Actually, I have three different plants of two varieties. They produce a small elongated blue berry that tastes not unlike a blueberry. Also known as honeyberries, these tiny potent fruit have one of the highest levels of antioxidants among berries, even higher than currents.

The bushes will grow to be 4-5 ft tall and the same in diameter and they are very hardy and suitable for the Canadian climate.  Two varieties that flower at the same time are needed for cross pollination, so I grow the Tundra and Polar Jewel.
