YEZBERRY HONEY BUNCH® Japanese Haskap

Zone: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 3-5' Width/Spread: 3-5'

Sweet berries anyone can grow! Yezberry Honey Bunch™ is a compact Japanese haskap, reaching just 3-5′ tall. Its small size means nearly everyone now has room to grow these delicious, nearly care-free fruits. Yellow flowers in very early spring become sweet, elongated blue fruits, perfect for eating fresh or processing. Plant near another Yezberry® variety to ensure bumper crops of fruit on both plants.

Light: Needs a minimum of four hours of direct sunlight to produce flowers for berries. Plant in afternoon shade to protect fruit from scalding.

Soil: Will grow well in a range of soil types, including pH levels.

Water: Enjoys growing in moist soil and needs consistency to produce a good fruit yield.

Fertilizing: In early spring, compost can be applied over the soil surface and worked in a bit.

Pruning: Not strictly necessary, but if you’d like to thin the plants you can do so in late winter or early spring before they start to grow. If you’d like to shape it, save that task for after the plant has produced fruit.
