• A late season cultivar with extremely big fruits, bred at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada; extremely promising due to its attractive berries which can be enjoyed raw.
  • A vigorous grower with a straight habit, develops elevated sprouts.
  • Yields oval and rounded fruits which become narrow and slightly fl attened on their tops and weigh 2.8 g (max. 3.9 g) on average; they are fi rm, fl eshy, sweet and excellent in fl avour, although large fruits of other Haskaps are not always so delicious; they do not drop off and are good for both mechanical and manual harvesting; some varieties with large fruits develop air-pockets and become large but light – the ‘Boreal Blizzard’ berries are fl eshy and heavy, and are excellent for the fresh fruits market; also good for manual (more laborious) harvesting since large fruits can be picked faster, they do not get damaged easily and can have a longer shelf life.
  • Gives abundant crops; fruits late – in the third week of July (according to the climate and weather conditions for Saskatoon, Canada); thanks to its late blooming and fruiting, it can extend its selling season and can be grown in warmer regions of the world.
  • To obtain its good crop, it is recommended to plant several diff erent Haskap varieties together (to enable crosspollination), it is best to grow such plants which bloom at the same time, especially ‘Boreal Beauty’ and ‘Boreal Beast’.
  • Our farms hold a licence granted by the University of Saskatchewan to propagate this variety.
  • Submitted for the CPVO registration, currently under temporary plant protection – application number 20171507.
