Haskap Berries

This is a new and old plant that has been around in the wild of northern climates. That’s why it does so well in Temiskaming. It has been found in the wild of every province in Canada, except for British Columbia. The fruit program at the University of Saskatchewan has bred different varieties taken from plants in Japan and Russia. It’s taken close to twenty years to get good edible berries. We now have haskap varieties that are sweeter, juicier and easier to pick. Right here in north!


Cherries that can grow in Northern Ontario are from the Dwarf Sour Cherry family. The University of Saskatchewan’s fruit program has also bred a Romance Series of cherries. The orchard has three varieties: Juliet, Valentine and Cupid. They are certainly not a new fruit, but growing them in the north certainly is.
