Haskaps flower on old wood, so pruning should occur after harvest. Plants should not be pruned until they have been in the ground for at least three years. Cut back the tips of stems to encourage branching as lateral branches bear more fruit. Older plants (3+ years in the ground) may be renewed by removing dead branches and weak stems in late winter. No more than 25% of the plant should be removed. For best fruit production plant more than one variety.
