Lonicera caerulea - Sweetberry Honeysuckle and Japanese Haskaps comparison chart

Yezberry® Japanese haskaps are closely related to best-selling Sugar Mountain® sweetberry honeysuckle. However, the Yezberry series was developed from purely Japanese strains of haskap, while the Sugar Mountain series is of Russian heritage. Other differences: Yezberry haskaps bloom a bit later, so they're a good choice for areas that get frequent spring frosts. Yezberry fruits are plumper and rounder than Sugar Mountain fruits, but both are equally tasty and heavy-bearing when it comes to harvest time. Berries are sweet enough to eat straight from the stems, or can be made into sauce, jam, or desserts.
