I found this haskap sales website (http://www.haskapcentral.com/) being highly recommended on www.albertahomegardening.com and the website says they ship Tundra and Borealis to the US.  You can read about them in their intro to haskaps thread.
They are both very nice haskaps, I'm not so convinced that they are anything other than bigger than the old varieties, but I like them all so I don't really care.

This has probably been discussed before but is anyone selling Haskaps
in the US?  Also what's the reproduction status on them? If they are
like other honeysuckles I imagine they are easy to propagate.
