Delicious fruit on a space saving dwarf plant!

The newest member of the Yezberry® series of Japanese haskaps ensures that even people with limited space can enjoy their tasty, unique fruit. It reaches just 3-5' tall and wide, about half the size of other varieties. These easy-going shrubs are one of the first plants to bloom in spring. Their tubular yellow flowers develop into elongated blue berries that taste like a cross between a raspberry and a blueberry. They're so sweet, you'll eat them right off the bush as soon as they ripen in early summer! Plant Yezberry Honey Bunch® near another Yezberry variety for a heavy crop of fruit on both. Blooms early spring on old wood.

Maintenance notes:
All Yezberry® varieties are very easy to grow and are not fussy about soil or pruning. Plant another Yezberry variety within 50' of Yezberry Sugar Pie® to ensure abundant fruit set on both plants. If pruning is needed or desired, do so when the fruit harvest is complete. You can harvest Yezberry® haskaps as they ripen, turning from green to deep blue. If you taste a blue fruit and it does not taste sweet, leave the crop on the plant for another couple of days to ripen fully.

In hot climates, afternoon shade is recommended.

Fun Facts:
Yezberry® Japanese haskaps are closely related to best-selling Sugar Mountain sweetberry huneysuckle®. 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.
