The Polar Jewel Haskap is a selected cultivar of Lonicera caerulea, known for its sweet, large berries and robust growth. It typically reaches a height of about 4 to 5 feet with a similar spread, making it a substantial addition to gardens. This variety is hardy in USDA zones 2 through 7, demonstrating excellent cold tolerance suitable for a wide range of Canadian climates. Polar Jewel Haskap prefers well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH and thrives in full sun, though it can manage in partial shade as well.

Distinguished by its elongated, dark blue berries, the Polar Jewel is celebrated for its exceptionally sweet flavor. The berries ripen in early to mid-summer and are larger than many other haskap varieties. They are perfect for fresh eating and a variety of culinary uses, including jams, jellies, and baking.

The haskap berry, with its origins in cold regions of Asia and Eastern Europe, is valued for its nutritional benefits and early fruiting season. The Polar Jewel Haskap, through selective breeding, has been developed to produce larger, sweeter berries while maintaining the plant's inherent hardiness. This variety is particularly appealing for gardeners in cooler climates seeking plants that offer both ornamental value and a plentiful, tasty harvest.
