New and unique flavour!
Haskap berries are new, delicious and easy! Imagine a plump, blue, juicy berry that tastes like a cross between a blueberry and a raspberry – that is a Haskap! You won’t find these fruits in the grocery store and they are easy to grow in a home garden. We have two varieties of Haskap – Yezberry Maxie and Yezberry Solo. Solo will bear fruit without a pollinator, but grows larger and more numerous berries when planted alongside another Yezberry variety such as Maxie. Maxie needs a pollinator, so best to plant one of each variety to ensure abundant fruit set on both plants.
Yellow flowers appear in very early spring and develop into luscious blue berries in early summer. Bushes require full sun and grow to a height of over 5 feet. As with other fruit, protection from birds is recommended. Since they fruit on old wood, no pruning is required. Eat berries fresh, or use in sauce, jam, beverages or desserts.
