Obviously the article on "Haskap" in POMONA wasn't read widely by people
on this list. 
The stuff OGW is selling is Russian material that only does well in a
Siberia-like climate. The Haskap selections being bred by Dr. Maxine
Thompson are much superior, though she wants to go through one more
round of selection on them before releasing varieties.

Hi all, 

OSU gave this plant a brief trial a few years ago in Columbus, OH. The 
plants grew just fine but they bloomed too early for consistent fruit 
production--Blue Velvet and Blue Belle's bloom periods did not always 
overlap for good pollination. 

They might make a good low shrub for forest gardens where consistent
production is not the highest priority.
