What is HASKAP?
It is also known as “Blue Honeysuckle, Honeyberry, Edible Honeysuckle and Sweetberry honeysuckles.” Most people mistakenly group haskap as a new type of blueberry but haskap’s closest fruit relation is the tomato.
The fruit has a sweet tangy zing flavour that most people say is a cross between a blueberry, raspberry and black currant. The berries have extreme high levels of antioxidants – even higher than blueberries. Because of its nutritional value, the Haskap berry has long been known by the ancient Japanese as ‘the fruit of Life longevity and Fruit of vision’. It is a fruit that holds a high nutritional value and tastes wonderfully sweet.
