New Haskap Orchard

New Haskap Orchard

Establishing a new Haskap orchard is an exciting enterprise. Haskap is one of the easiest most rewarding berries to grow but there are a few basic considerations.

As with any orchard planning, the primary considerations are location (sun), soil, and water.  With Haskap specifically, we recommend a weed mulch fabric and eventually a bird netting system. Although most pests don’t bother with this bush – birds go wild for the berries. Each year we know it’s time to put up the nets when we see the first purple-stained dropping on our deck! Nature knows when the berries are ripe but we prefer a more precise measurement using a brix meter. Follow these links to more information:
