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.

Topics covered include: Symptoms, Natural Range, Breeding For The South, and Imports
