Huckleberries

Zone West Linn, Oregon 97068 | Anonymous added on April 12, 2018 | Answered

I planted in the shade three Huckleberry plants about 4 years ago and they are about four feet tall now. They flower like crazy and have lots of visiting bees. I water and feed them like I do my Blueberries. The Blueberries fruit like crazy, but for some reason the Huckleberries never fruit. My question is: Does the Huckleberry plant need to be some may years old in order to produce fruit? Thank you for your help, Karen

    If plant care is good and nutrition and environmental conditions are met you can expect to get fruit in 3 to 5 years.

    Full production can take 10 to 15 years. So, likely just more patience is needed.
