Alaska Honeyberry Plant (Haskaps)
Oh, the Alaska Honeyberry, THE ultimate Alaska berry in our opinion. The honeyberry is not only tasty but it’s crazy cold hardy (down to zone 2) and is one of the earliest producers in the summer.

About your order:
We have been working with a propagator in Canada where we have received excellent service and superior plants. Although they arrive small (6-12″), they are quick to establish and grow quickly with proper care. Just one advantage is your plants don’t have to ship from Canada to the lower 48 just to be shipped back up here. Instead, we have procured an import license and are shipping the plants here directly from the propagator in Canada. You will receive dormant plants in wonderful condition that will be ready for spring planting.
At this point, we are expecting to have the plants here in early May. We will email you and let you know when the time gets closer. Pickup will be at our farm in Big Lake.
