What We Grow
TUNDRA HASKAP BERRIES
Tundra Haskaps are firm, thin skin berries that melts in your mouth. The Tundra variety is shaped like an elongated bell and so very juicy, with a tangy, sweet flavour.
INDIGO GEM HASKAP BERRIES
Indigo Gem Haskaps are small and oval shaped with a thicker skin and flesh than other haskaps, making them slightly chewier. When cooked, the thicker skin allows them to hold their shape with the sweetness of a plum-like flavour.

What are the Health Benefits of Haskap Berries?
Haskaps contain three times the antioxidants of blueberries! Antioxidants fight bad cells in the body to create an alkaline environment which chronic diseases cannot thrive in. Immune health and good bacteria are also known to benefit from the presence of antioxidants.
Polyphenols help reduce inflammation in the body tissues and organs.
