WHAT'S NEW

At Renouf Farms our varieties of Haskap have a fresh raspberry/blueberry flavour with a special zing found only in Haskaps. The plants grow well in our climate and are the first fruit crop to ripen each season (earlier than strawberries by a few weeks). The plant is well behaved: it doesn’t sucker, has no thorns, needs little pruning in early years and tends to fruit when very young. Renouf Farms has been operating a you-pick berry operation for over 10 years with Saskatoons and Raspberries and we are excited to add Haskaps to the orchard. Extensive research indicates that the flavour and health benefits will create a very high demand for these berries and we plan to be there to satisfy that demand.

This chart shows the comparative ripening times of the different fruit varieties in Saskatchewan. The weather in the spring can have a great effect on the start and end times of this chart!

Our Haskap plants were developed at the University of Saskatchewan fruit breeding program thanks to Dr. Bob Bors who has been working diligently to improve the edible blue honeysuckle since 1997. The 7 most recent and successful varieties are represented in our orchard and hopefully will ensure a constant supply of ripening berries for 7 weeks as shown in the chart below. The plants were mainly purchased at Haskap Central Sales in Henribourg with some purchased directly from the University during plant sales days in June and some at Young Plants Canada in Elrose.
