Floral longevity, nectar production, pollen release, and stigma receptivity in Haskap
Haskap (Lonicera caerulea L.: Caprifoliaceae) is a cold hardy, early flowering shrub that is grown commercially throughout northern areas of North America, Europe, and Asia. It produces edible blue fruit that have a sweet, tart flavour and are now being used in a variety of food products in addition to being eaten fresh. As a result, its popularity as a crop is on the rise, particularly within the Canadian prairies. Haskap needs insect pollinators in order to produce fruit, but very little is currently known about its pollination biology.
