Description

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.
