A very cold hardy and adaptable orchard plant that makes it easy for homeowners to grow their own berries. L. caerulea is native to the boreal regions of North America and Eurasia and is well-adapted to cold climates. Yezberry™ varieties were bred from pure Japanese strains and produce exceptional yields of very sweet fruit in summer. Yezberry® Maxie™ has the largest fruit ever seen on a Japanese hascap variety. The large, blue fruit is shaped like an olive, and is very easy to harvest. Plant near Yezberry® Solo™ for the best fruit production.
