Lonicera caerulea

Japanese Haskap - Yezberry Solo

The Japanese Haskap is an extremely tough fruit bearing shrub in the honeysuckle family. Also known as honeyberries, the early summer berries are plump blue elongated fruits which taste like blueberries, but sweeter! Tolerant of most any soil conditions and pH levels. No pollinator required, but berries grow larger and more plentiful when another Haskap is planted nearby. Produces on old wood, so prune after harvest if desired. Great for processing into jam, jelly, or sauce, if you haven't eaten all of them fresh from the plant! Excellent mass planting, screen. Deer resistant.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
