THE HASKAP / HONEYBERRY
Haskap/Honeyberry is often compared to a longer blueberry. It has a cylindrical shape, a powdery blue skin and the flesh inside is a deep purple. The taste could be described as a mix in-between a raspberry and a blueberry, tart but sweet, and juicy. Its applications in the frozen form are particularly well suited for the jams, juice and dairy market segments.
