Haskaps are nearly ripe and ready for picking. The tiny fruit, rare anywhere outside of Hokkaido, Japan, is only found in one spot on the Kenai Peninsula. Brian and Laurie Olson, owners of Alaska Berries, are not holding the location of their rare stash hostage. “In ten years I think everyone will have heard of this berry,” Brian Olson said. The thick, oblong berries that resemble deformed blueberries are “about one week out,” Olson said as he walked beside a row of four-foot-tall plants.
