The most dwarf variety of Japanese haskap! Yezberry Sugar Pie® is the smallest variety of Japanese haskap yet, reaching just 3-4′ tall. It grows with a neat, rounded habit with no pruning required. One of the first plants to bloom in spring, yellow honeysuckle-like flowers become elongated blue berries that are delicious fresh or processed. Plant near another Yezberry® variety to ensure an abundant yield 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.
