Lonicera – Yezberry Sugar Pie® – Japanese haskap – Lonicera caerulea
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.
Native to North America

With its small size, Yezberry Sugar Pie® can be grown in small spaces. Add it to your vegetable garden, or use it to create a low edible hedge.
