The Boreal Blizzard Honeyberry produces large, flavorful berries – perfect for fresh eating, baking, and freezing. These elongated berries are known to have a flavor similar to blueberries. This variety is known for the size of its berries and how productive they are! The berries themselves are up to 3 times heavier than other varieties of Haskap.

The Boreal Blizzard Honeyberry blooms late and has a harvest window in midseason, with a general mid-June to mid-July window. This berry plant has an upright, vigorous growth habit and strong branching structure that develops a dome shape crown.

Plant your honeyberries in rich soil – they can thrive in partial shade, For this specimen to produce, it’ll need a different honeyberry plant that blooms around the same time to pollinate it.
