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 Treat Haskap (Honeyberry)



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Indigo Treat 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 Treat 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 Treat Haskap (Honeyberry) again after the transplant is complete.

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.

I chose this Honeyberry because it looks interesting and I don't know anyone else who has one.
Janica P on May 24, 2017
I like the idea of a new type of berry to try out and I like the deep blue of the berries when ripe.
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. Also it was easy to order the pollinator together with it without guessing. Also, it says it ships today.

Does the Indigo Treat Haskap shrub REQUIRE a pollinator Gem Haskap or is that optional? It is listed under 'extras' when ordering plant the plant on the site...

Thank you!
J Q on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will require a pollinator.
what pollinator do I need for this?
TM C on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is Dr. Bob Bors from U of Saskatchewan suggestion:

Plant varieties that are not directly related as pollinators. The new U of S varieties are related to Blue
Belle, Blue Velvet, Kiev #8 and ‘Tomichka’, so these may not work as well. It is more likely that other Russian varieties could be acceptable pollinators such as ‘Berry Blue’ ‘Berel’, ‘Gerde’, ‘Ognennyi Opal’ or ‘Dew Drop’. Why Russian varieties and not Japanese or Kuril Island types? The Russian varieties bloom the same time as our new varieties. Japanese and Kuril types bloom 2 to 3 weeks later. Of the above possible pollinators, I’d recommend ‘Berry Blue’ (also called Czech #17) because it is a fast growing tall plant that makes many flowers. The flavor and yield is acceptable although the fruit size is very small.
What is/are chill hours? What does this mean?
Bree A on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Chill hours is the number of hours between 32-45F during the dormant period, (usually between November and February) the plant needs in order to produce fruit the following year.
What are the temperature requirement for chill hours ?
Marie on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They need 1,000 chill hours.
How many chill hours does zone 5 usually have?
