we planted…

…our first 75 edible blue honeysuckles in 2006; in 2008 we added 1,000 U of SK haskap plants. Our orchard currently contains 2,617 plants including: HASKAP (U of SK) – Borealis, Tundra, Indigo Gem, Indigo Yum, Honey Bee, Aurora; HONEYBERRIES – Berry Blue, Blue Velvet OP crosses, and EASTERN HEMISPHERE ANCESTRY OP SELECTIONS – Amfora, Dimzas, Fialka, Leningradski Velikan, Kitoy, Morena, Nymfa. We also have a few of OUR OWN OP EBH NON-VARIETALS.

We were a part of the development of Haskap Canada from its first organizational meeting. Our goal now is to compassionately give away this exceptional fruit to the poor, the homeless, those to whom this extremely healthy food is least available.

Our orchard is chemical free in all respects, and is protected from all outside contamination. We are licensed propagators with the University of Saskatchewan and produce plants for free distribution to people who are likewise willing to openly and freely share their fruit.

This blog is simply a record of our orchard and may not apply to your orchard, plants, skills, or goals; it is certainly not meant to be a guideline by any means, but may be useful in comparing similar results in similar conditions.
