Frost Proof Blooms and an Abundance of Sweet Berries

The Indigo Gem Honeyberry is a relative of the honey suckle, that also provides tons of delicious sweet berries that are similar to blueberries.

Early every spring tons of white and fragrant blooms emerge all over this dependable shrub. Their sweet floral scent will fill you yard and drift through your neighborhood, causing your yard to be the best smelling in the neighborhood.

Late frosts won't harm these sweet blooms, they're extremely cold hardy down to growing zone 2 and provide weeks of beauty before turning into large unique berries.

Indigo Gem Haskap berries start off green, ripen with a dusty blue color as they grow, and have an elongated oval shape. Similar to blueberries, these berries have a slightly tart yet very sweet flavor. Indigo Gems have a chewy and firm texture that make them perfect for snacking.

Set your recipes apart by adding Indigo Gem berries. Your pies, jams, smoothies, and more will never be the same because they all of the sudden have a sweet and unique flavor that store bought berries can't replicate.

Not only do these berries taste great, but they're also packed with nutritious benefits. Each Indigo Gem is filled with vitamin C, Potassium, and antioxidants. While you're snacking on them enjoy the fact that you're enjoying a healthy and delicious treat while knowing that you grew these berries yourself without the use of harmful pesticides.

Plant your Indigo Gem shrubs anywhere, its compact nature of only growing 5 to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide allow them to be planted in even the smallest gardens. They make for the perfect flowering hedge, and container plants with eye catching, tough blooms and tons of sweet berries.

These fragrant bloomers and vigorous berry producers are rising in popularity among the gardening scene. They sell out fast, we recommend getting yours today before they're gone.

not hardy at all. fruitless
After each shipment arrived of our MANY orders, I kept getting told, well just tell us if it dies, we'll replace it. In the meantime, I have a horrible, beaten up tree or plant, because of their packaging. Most of the dirt spilled out of the bags, the soil treatment and startup placed losely in the boxes just bounced around during shipment and damaged what was probably decent looking plants. Because of the damage and shock all the plants and trees we received (over $1,000 purchased), most are very slow in growing and don't look much bigger than the day we planted them in the Spring (it is not mid-October). I will never buy from this company again. I have since purchased from 2 fantastic other companies online who know better than to put heavy bags of soil condition in with their boxed plants and trees.. they ship those separately. Their packaging and products were so far above Fast-Growing Trees in quality, timely shipments and growth !...

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry)

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry).

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry) gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry) again after the transplant is complete.

Have always wanted blueberries, just never took the time to go out and buy. Ordering on line was simpler.

I enjoy shopping, and planting varieties of edibles, noted for their health giving properties. 'Fast-Growing-Trees' offers wonderfully detailed information regarding each plant. The descriptions assure me, that I can place them into my environment and be reasonably assured of success in their growth, and productivity. It's also nice to see that they care to offer insurance (at an affordable price) to cover a years time.

Although the Indigo Treat Haskap I purchased is self pollinating I bought the Indigo Gem Haskap as a pollinator so it produces more and better quality fruits !!!
mike D on Jun 11, 2017
I like the idea of a new berry to try and it looks like it will grow well in my area.
J Christopher H on May 22, 2017
Ordered as a gift for a gardener. I'm hoping it's unusual enough that she doesn't already have it but that it's appropriate for Zone 5. The description compared it to Honeysuckle, which I'm familiar with. It was easy to order the pollinator together with it without guessing. Also, it says it ships today.

Hardy, fruit bearing, grows in zone 3
Leland B on May 17, 2017
Did not produce fruit yet, but over the summer majority of the leaves jus fel off the plant, it's still alive and is shooting new leaves now for spring. Hoping it produces fruit this year

Same as above . . . and for pollination reasons.

How many years before it produces fruit in zone 5?
grammy on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You should see fruit within it's first year.
I noticed that this doesn't say anything about growing in zone 8. Will that be a problem if a few of them are purchased, will they grow in zone 8?
OneLegChamp on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are not recommended in that area, however, there have been customers to grown plants outside of their zone successfully. We cannot put a warranty on any trees outside of the recommended growing zone.
Will my Sea Buckthorn pollinate my Indigo Gem Haskap?
Ann S on Aug 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Sea Buckthorn will not pollinate the Indigo Gem Haskap. You will need an Indigo Treat Haskap for pollination.
How soon do you get edible berries after planting the Indigo Gem Haskap?
Christine S on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You may have to do more research on the Internet to obtain this answer; there are many variables. One thing I learned is that it's best to buy more than one or another species for maximum pollination and berry production. The plant when purchased is not a bush that would produce its first year.
Do I need a pollinator or is it self pollinating?
Ann S on Jul 25, 2015
To be honest I'm not total sure but I do believe you do need a pollinator and it is always best to have a different type, like you have A Indigo Gem Haskap then maybe get a Blue Velvet. You really do not want 2 of the same kind because they do not pollinate well being the same type. This is true with most plants, even fruit trees. Like if you have 2 different types of peaches they will produce more peaches pollinating with a different peach instead of same kind of peach, hold true with apples, plums, cherries, etc. etc.. If space is a problem just plant them side by side but it will be better to have 2 and that there 2 different types of honeyberries and with 2 plants you will end-up with over double the berries, now you can't complain about having over twice the amount of berries can you, :-))))
Hope this has helped you. I try to be as honest as I can so I'm not %100 sure you must have a pollinator, but I'm pretty sure you do and even plants that are self pollinating will do better when it has a different type of same plant to pollinate with.
What kind of yield can you expect from honey berry ? Or return on investment?
