They contain lots of vitamins and minerals, especially valuable for a human organism, which means the Blue Honeysuckle – Haskap may be used as a dietary, prevention, and medical plants. The experts called its fruits "the berries of eternal youth", as they found anti-ageing chemical bonds in them. It is an undemanding plant, easy in its cultivation. The new strains combine the most wanted features - large, dessert, sweet-and-sour fruits without the trace of gentian, resistance to drought, longevity, resistance to frost, and earliness. The unique healthiness of the cultivated strains enables using ecological methods of cultivation.
