Haskap berry

    11 responses

loewenzahn starts with ...
Does anyone has haskap berries in Australia? They are lonicera caerula. Apparently there are cultivars. I don't even know if they would do well here or if they need a real hard freeze. I am in the upper mountains. (Since lonicera japonica is a weed here it might work..)

Don't think anyone would be selling Haskap plants in Australia. I'm growing a couple from seeds which are readily available from overseas suppliers and they are approved species for import.

You need to have at least 2 different varieties growing together to ensure pollination. Some of the Siberian types have huge fruit but it's easier to get seeds of different cultivars from Canada where they are farmed commercially. My little Haskap seedlings below.Cheers!

I can not locate any O/s Haskap seed supplier that will send to Australia. Can you tell me the supplier please?

You can find them on ebay and there is a seller having them in Adelaide at the moment.

It shouldn't be too long until they start appearing in certain nurseries.

I'm a little confused by the appearance of your L. caerulea there Linton, they look nothing like the Borealis I grew last year. The petioles look very long and the leaves serrated - looks more like an Acer negundo or something to me! Hopefully it's just the photo and I'm wrong!

Sorry to get your hopes up Tommoz, I'm only really assuming based on their increasing popularity. You certainly won't find at your 'regular' garden centres any time soon though

They seem to really need a very cold winter to do well. Heavy frosts and lengthy sub zero.

My seeds grown plants are doing well and holding up in the heat. There are some people growing them in Tasmania. Only suitable for southern Australia I suppose but they seem pretty tough once they get going
