Yezberry™ Maxie is a Japanese Haskap with super large fruit. The large, plump fruit is very moist and sweet. This native variety is very hardy down to zone 3 and very adaptable to most soil conditions. Yezberry™ Maxie can be grown in full sun to part shade. Standing 5-6 foot tall Yezberry™ Maxie makes a great hedge. In mid-summer the delicious large berries are ready to be harvested. The large size of the Japanese Haskap makes it easy for harvesting. We recommend planting Yezberry™ Maxie with Yezberry™ Solo to increase your Haskap yield. Haskaps can be used for snacking, jellies and sauces.

Haskaps flower on old wood, so pruning should occur after harvest. Plants should not be pruned until they have been in the ground for at least three years. Cut back the tips of stems to encourage branching as lateral branches bear more fruit. Older plants (3+ years in the ground) may be renewed by removing dead branches and weak stems in late winter. No more than 25% of the plant should be removed. For best fruit production plant more than one variety.

Price does not include $1.05 royalty.  Tag is mandatory to ship with each quart liner purchased. They are billed to you at cost.
