Haskap Berries

Haskap Berries

Haskap  plants produce a fabulous tasting fruit some say it tastes like a cross between a raspberry and blueberry.   The berries are high in vitamin C and a great source of antioxidants.    Haskaps can be used in the same way you would other berries including: fresh eating, jams & preserves, baking and even a juice.

Haskaps flower on old wood, so pruning should occur after harvest. Plants should not be pruned until they have been in the ground for at least three years. Cut back the tips of stems to encourage branching as lateral branches bear more fruit. Older plants (3+ years in the ground) may be renewed by removing dead branches and weak stems in late winter. No more than 25% of the plant should be removed. For best fruit production plant more than one variety
