2 year old rooted cuttings 10”-20” tall multistemmed 

Haskaps require a different variety for pollination. We have 3 varieties that pair together wonderfully. Buying our bundles makes the most sense. 

Haskaps, aka honeyberry, are the new hot plant for cold climate berry production!  Haskasps are a dense compact shrub growing new basal sprouts every year with beautiful foliage, lovely blooms and producing delicious blue berries that taste like a cross between a blueberry and raspberry. Considered a superfood type berry with higher micronutrient contents than many of its berries contemporaries.

Our plants are grown from cuttings taken from a diverse planting with more than 3 varieties present to ensure good pollination. We got these cuttings from a friendly woman unsure of their origin but are likely a mix of Russian and Japanese genetics. This year we are offering pollinator packs of the distinct varieties as well as a mix pack blend of unlabeled rooted cuttings from different flowering timed bushes. 

Haskap Bundle of 6: 2 of each variety. 2x Haskap 1, 2x Haskap 2, 2x Haskap 3 for 6 plants in total. Plant in an alternating fashion to ensure good pollination. 

Haskap Bundle of 9: 3 of each variety. 3x Haskap 1, 3x Haskap 2, 3x Haskap 3 for 9 plants in total. Plant in an alternating fashion to ensure good pollination. 

Haskap 1: Short bush with large berries, reportedly the first flowering variety of the 3 distinct bush types. Pair with Haskap 2 and Haskap 3 for adequate pollination

Haskap 2: Medium bush, large extra sweet berries. Typically flowering the latest of the 3. Pair with Haskap 1 and Haskap 3 for adequate pollination. 

Haskap 3: Tall bush, small sweet berries. Longest flowering time and probably the best pollinator for the other two. Pair with Haskap 1 and Haskap 2 for adeqate pollination. 

Unlabeled Mix: A bed of cuttings we grew from a friends place who had a bunch of mixed varieties that she didn’t know the origin of but were all producing well. Best Value!
