Discover the benefit of this remarkable Berry.

Have you ever heard of Haskap berries? The delicious fruit is getting popular for its flavor and health benefits. The Haskap berry can be a tasty addition to your healthy diet.

The Origins of Haskap:

Haskap, also known as Lonicera caerulea or honeyberry, is a fruit native to cool temperatures that grows in regions of the Northern Hemisphere, including Japan, Russia, and Canada. Its history dates back centuries. Indigenous cultures use the berry as a natural food source for its medicinal properties.

Taste and Health Benefits:

Haskap berries have a uniquely sweet and tangy flavor and taste like a blend of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It makes them perfect for jams, jellies, pies, and savory dishes like sauces and marinades.

Also, Haskap contains essential nutrients and antioxidants that promote overall health and well-being. These tiny berries contain two to three times more vitamin C than oranges and four times as much as blueberries! They are packed with fiber, potassium, calcium, and iron, making them a nutrient-dense addition to any diet. They also contain anthocyanins and flavonoids that are anti-inflammatory and anti-aging.

Why Choose Haskap:

Exceptional flavor: Haskap berries offer a unique and delightful taste that surpasses many traditional berry varieties.

Versatility in cooking: Whether you’re making a sweet dessert or a savory dish, the berry adds a fruity taste to any recipe.

Health benefits: The abundance of essential nutrients and antioxidants in the berries make them valuable to a balanced diet.

Cold-hardy: Haskap plants are adapted to withstand harsh climates, making them an excellent choice for gardeners in cooler regions.

You can Grow Haskap yourself:

If you’re interested in cultivating your own Haskap berries, you’ll be pleased to know that they are relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in various soil types. Here are some key points to consider when growing them:

  1. Climate: Haskap plants are well-suited for regions with cold winters and cool summers, as they require a certain amount of cold to set fruit.
  2. Soil: Haskap prefers well-drained soil with a slightly acidic pH level. If your soil is not naturally acidic, you may need to amend it accordingly.
  3. Sunlight: While the plant can tolerate some shade, it produces the best yields when exposed to full sun.
  4. Pruning: Regular pruning is essential to maintain the health and productivity of Haskap plants. Prune during the dormant season to encourage new growth and optimal fruit production.

The berries have twice as much juice in them as any other berry! We have found that frozen berries work better for pie filling than fresh berries. If you use fresh berries, they tend to continue to leak out juice after being baked.
