Establishing a new Haskap orchard is an exciting enterprise. Haskap is one of the easiest most rewarding berry 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:
