Get to know
the super fruit of the prairies.
Our haskap berries are locally grown on our farms through sustainable agriculture, naturally without pesticides and herbicides.
The haskap berry can be oval, pear-shaped or like a lumpy sack. Its firmness is comparable to bilberries, and its skin is black with a blue waxy coating called "bloom" similar to blueberries or concord grapes. Most of the varieties are elongated and weigh similarly to blackberries. They are 2 cm long but thin as a pencil.
Haskap flavour can vary. It can be sweet, tart, or a mix of both flavours but has a bitter tang when not fully riped. The berries have an excellent wild fruity aroma and have a deeper berry flavour than other soft fruits. The haskap juice has a sharp, tangy flavour but can be very sweet.
The haskap is a berry with different names and varieties but possesses many potential health benefits.
