An exciting new release. Aurora offers much better fruit quality than previous pollinators. Fruit is similar in size and flavour to Borealis. Also called Honeyberries. These native shrubs have been bred in Saskatchewan and are hardier than highbush blueberries. The unique, sweet flavour compares to a cross between blueberries and raspberries. Ripens early, in mid-June, and is perfect for fresh eating or any recipe where blueberries are used. Makes very deep purple jam. Extremely high in antioxidants. Requires a pollinator variety- Borealis or Tundra. Will begin bearing fruit in 2-3 years. Birds also love the fruit, so black netting is recommended.
Created at the University of Saskatchewan. Packed with antioxidants. No pest or disease problems.
