My Haskap are in full bloom. I planted a variety about five years ago, not knowing what type would thrive. Last year about five pounds of berries were obtained. Each berry has to b picked individually. I now use a sheet under the plants and shake the bush which is an effective picking method. Birds love them so I got an air balloon and will use it this year to deter the birds. They are the earliest fruit in my zone 5 about mid June. I use the fruit to make milk shakes.
