Peninsula berry grower cultivates a 'masterpiece'

Brian Olson said he will spend the rest of his life further cultivating what he said is the country's new "super berry" - and he is thrilled. The berries are "hardy, the fruit's great and I'm really excited for it because I think it can be a new commercial crop in this state that people can actually commercially grow," he said. The berry Olson is excited about grows from the Japanese haskap plant, and because of its resiliency, he said it will be a significant contribution in a state that is not predominately known for its crop productions.
