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 !...
I ordered a Gem and Treat Haskap and already have flowers on them its just utterly amazing on the quality of trees that come from FGT.COM . I only planted them a few weeks ago and have budding and flowers . Cant wait toil I get fruit from these guys . One other thing buy 2 different Haskaps so they pollinate better you will get a bigger and better yield ! Mike D. Pgh.
