Honeyberries and Other Perennial Berries
Thursday, June 16 | 1-3 p.m.
Hosts: Jeff & Deb Sindelar
Deb’s Berry Farm
Address: 7290 28th Ave. | Newhall, IA 52315
Have you ever tasted honeyberries, also known as haskaps? These perennial shrubs offer an exciting season-extension fruit crop for Iowa – but like any new crop, the right variety and proper management make a difference. The earliest-ripening honeyberries are ready for harvest even before the earliest strawberries, and harvest continues until mid-June.
Jeff Sindelar grows honeyberries and many other perennial fruits on his farm near Newhall, Iowa. He will share his enthusiasm, knowledge and experience growing these exciting perennial crops during the peak ripeness of the best-tasting varieties.
Light refreshments will be served.
