Join the Haskap revolution! This delicious and highly nutritious blue berry, the fruit of a Honeysuckle species, boasts more antioxidants, potassium, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C than oranges, blueberries, pomegranates, and other comparable fruits. And with varieties like Honey Bunch™, you'll find Haskap berries so easy to grow!

We tend to think of honeysuckles as summer-flowering vines in this country, but Honey Bunch™ is a Japanese species that sets masses of oblong, deep blue berries as well. Oh, the trumpet-shaped yellow flowers are present too, but they appear in early spring, and are replaced in no time by berries that ripen in summertime. And when we say, "berries," we mean HUNDREDS upon hundreds of delectable sweet-tart treats!

Honey Bunch™ is part of the Yezberry® series of dwarf mounding shrubs. Just 3 to 5 feet tall and wide, it is compact enough for the middle of the border, as a deciduous hedge, or even part of the foundation planting. Be sure to plant it near at least one other fruiting Honeysuckle for best pollination. It fruits later than the Russian varieties, making it a good succession planting as well as a better choice for northern climates.

Deer tend to leave this Honeysuckle alone, but bees and butterflies are drawn to it. Give it well-drained soil, good food and water the first season or two, and watch it take off! Zones 3-7.
