I got 25 Crimson Passion from Honeyberry USA, this year, & tho they
were tiny tissue culture plants 8" high, most of them are a very
vigorous 3' now after 2 1/2 months in the ground. I'm assuming the
Haskaps are tissue culture as well.
I also have been really annoyed by the Haskap name until I discovered
that the word is an ancient Ainu word for the fruit, which convinced
me it was a good choice of name. Plus without "honeysuckle" in the
name people's invasive plant alarms won't go off so quickly.
