Ripeness stages of Haskap Berries

The Looks

The haskap berry  can be oval, pear-shaped or like a lumpy sack. Its firmness is comparable to bilberries, and its skin is black with a blue waxy coating called "bloom" similar to blueberries or concord grapes. Most of the varieties are elongated and weigh similarly to blackberries. They are 2 cm long but thin as a pencil.

The Flavour

Haskap flavour can vary. It can be sweet, tart, or a mix of both flavours but has a bitter tang when not fully riped. The berries have an excellent wild fruity aroma and have a deeper berry flavour than other soft fruits. The haskap juice has a sharp, tangy flavour but can be very sweet.
