I found this haskap sales website ( being
highly recommended on 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.

The fluffy one was one genealogical quest for his ancestors last week when he
came across St. Patrick's Church in Clevland.

Of interest to apple collectors is an apple tree in the church parking lot.
I carefully observed the tree and others and concluded it was probably
planted when the first church was erected (St Patrick's was probably the
second church on the site or founded after a previous church (i.e the
graveyard is much older than the church's founding date).

Anyway the parking lot holds a sweet yellow apple that tasted good even
though it was far form ripe. The tree itself did not show any signs of
common diseases, the foliage was lush and outside of insect damage the apples
were clean. I also note the current tree is actually an outer shell with a
newer tree having grown up inside it, so wither the top was destroyed in a
storm and regrew or it hollowed out and regrew. But the fruit that appeared
to be the old tree appeared the same as the new inner tree.

Even unripe, the apple was very pleasant to taste, sweet and very crisp (I
loved the texture) even with the starchy aftertaste.

At any rate< I do not live in the are so I will not be able to obtain scions,
but it may be of interest to some of you.

If anyone goes after a scion I would appreciate hearing of it and how it
turns out.

Btw St Patrick's is being closed so time may be of the essence.

Kindest regards,
