A very cold hardy and adaptable orchard plant that makes it easy for homeowners to grow their own berries. L. caerulea is native to the boreal regions of North America and Eurasia and is well-adapted to cold climates. Yezberry™ varieties were bred from pure Japanese strains and produce exceptional yields of very sweet fruit in summer. Yezberry® Maxie™ has the largest fruit ever seen on a Japanese haskap variety. The large, blue fruit is shaped like an olive and is very easy to harvest. Plant near Yezberry® Solo™ for the best fruit production.

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.
