We are doing u-pick every day from 9 am - 1 pm unless it rains.  Check our facebook page Circle D Ranch for updates.

 

The haskap berry is a circumpolar species native to Northern boreal forests in Asia, Europe and North America.  The haskap is known by a variety of names, including, Blue Honeysuckle and Honeyberry.  The plants are extremely hardy and do well in Northern climates, which makes this berry very suited for the Yukon.  Not only is the haskap very tasty, but it also has wonderful health benefits and has been known by the ancient Japanese as "The Fruit of Life Longevity and Fruit of Vision".  The berry is high in vitamin C and A, and also high in fibre and potassium.  The taste is often described as being similar to blueberries, raspberries and black currants.  The haskap berry is higher in anti-oxidants than blueberries, which is often hailed as a superfruit.
