YEZBERRY® Solo™ Japanese Haskap

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

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® Solo™ is a special selection that fruits very well without a pollinator; however, you will get even larger fruit and bigger yields when planted near another Yexberry™ variety. It has very large fruit that are easy to harvest.

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.
