Hi Inge;

How are the Honey Berries doing for you? Do they sell well art market? I really like the flavor of them, much nicer than blueberries IMO.

They're just getting to the point now where I should get enough to take to market, Lyn.
I love the flavour!
I don't think I'll have a problem selling them. There is another vendor at market who does mostly fruit and berries and she sells out of her haskaps right away.

Good! I'm glad that they do well for the other vendor. You shouldn't have a problem selling them then. I was a bit worried since they are not a well known fruit.

Lyn,
Were these developed in Saskatoon? I remember reading about haskaps. Does the bush produce enough to make anything, or is it just a handful or so at a time? I'm not sure whether they'd be worth it because there are so many birds in my area. I counted about fifteen bird houses in the immediate vicinity, none of which are in my yard - I've found, the birds use my yard for the salad bar and take lodgings elsewhere!

Once they start to produce there should be lots of fruit. You need two varietes for fruit set. Yes, they were developed in Saskatoon.

Which varieties do you have? I have two on the way of my selection and I'm not sure which to get..

I have Berry Blue and Cinderella. Berry Blue is a good pollinator for all types.

Here is a list of the more common Haskaps. Cinderella doesn't seem to be available at all greenhouses.
