History: Aurora haskap (Lonicera caerulea) was developed at the University of Saskatchewan. After a decade of breeding and trials, it was released in 2012. It was originally selected as a pollinator for Borealis haskap but its superior flavour and greater productivity compared to other varieties quickly made it more popular.

Why We Grow It: A sweetly flavoured favourite! Aurora tastes like a cross between a raspberry and a blueberry, with a satisfying chewy texture. The deep blue fruit are 3 cm long and juicy. Allow to sit out a few days after picking for optimally sweet fruit. The bush grows up to 2m tall. 

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 2

Soil Preference: Prefers average conditions and well-drained soil

Growth Habits and Disease Resistance: Moderately vigorous with a round and upright growth pattern, produces good crops. Generally disease resistant. 

Sun/Shade: Full sun (approx. 8-10 hours of sun daily)

Pollination: Requires a pollinator of a different variety such as Honey Gin

Flowering Time: Middle

Ripens: Late June, let it sit out a few days to ripen further for optimal sweetness

Storage: Keeps about a week when stored in the fridge
