Description Fine Print
 
Lonicera caerulea, known as haskap or honeyberry, is a super hardy zone 2 shrubby honeysuckle that produces tasty cylindrical blue fruits high in vitamin C that taste like a combination of blueberry and raspberry. The fruit can be eaten fresh or used for pies, jams, jellies, and other desserts. The Boreal Series was bred by Bob Bors at the University of Saskatchewan to bring together the best traits of Japanese, Russian, and Kurile lineages. 'Boreal Beauty' has very large, rounded, sometimes heart-shaped fruit with delicious flavour. Use it as a pollinator for 'Boreal Blizzard' and 'Boreal Beast'. Haskaps need to be pollinated by a different clone, all of which will bear fruit. Fragrant, yellow, tubular, spring flowers attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Deer resistant and excellent mildew resistance.
