Fun Facts

Yezberry® Japanese haskaps are closely related to best-selling Sugar Mountain® sweetberry honeysuckle. However, the Yezberry series was developed from purely Japanese strains of haskap, while the Sugar Mountain series is of Russian heritage. Other differences: Yezberry haskaps bloom a bit later, so they're a good choice for areas that get frequent spring frosts. Yezberry fruits are plumper and rounder than Sugar Mountain fruits, but both are equally tasty and heavy-bearing when it comes to harvest time.

Maintenance Notes
Plant so that each shrub gets plenty of air and sunshine to ensure best growth and pollination for fruit set. If plant needs pruning, do so after harvesting the fruit. Harvest fruit shortly after it turns from green to blue; taste one for sweetness first and if it is on the sour side, give it a few more days on the vine before harvesting.

Uses Notes

PLEASE NOTE: To produce berries, you'll need to plant another Yezberry® variety as a pollinator.
