Haskap

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

I enjoy stumbling across blogs on focused topics  like this one about Haskap.

That’s right,  haskap. Not just any edible honeysuckle, but haskap, the varieties of Lonicera caerulea being bred by Dr. Bob Bors at the University of Saskatchewan.

I can boast that I’m one of the few people in Canada who has actually made haskap wine.  It was an experimental batch that I made for a friend who is just getting into planting haskap at his U-Pick. I think it turned out very well.
