Happy Holidays!

Freshly juiced organic apples!  A fine mix at 4:1 with juiced haskap.
Try juicing your haskap!  Yielding roughly 40% juice by weight, mix this with freshly juiced apples at a rate of 1 part haskap to 4 parts apple, for a unique blend.  At this rate the apples and haskap can be individually discerned, but neither overpowers the other, and additionally result in a mix that is all of its own…a fresh taste to add to your new year!

Happy New Year and may your haskap grow and bear profusely in 2014...from Haskap Canada!

New Article On Haskap Climate Zone Requirements

There's a new article posted on the University of Saskatchewan website about climate zone requirements for haskap:  How Far South Can Haskap/ Lonicera caerulea Be Grown?

Many gardeners and farmers are interested in trying Haskap in warmer parts of Canada, USA and around the world.   Experienced gardeners in the north are all too familiar with the idea that they might not be able to grow all the fruits they see in the nursery catalogs or at the big box stores.  But growers in warmer regions are usually not familiar with the concept that they might be south of an optimum growing region.
