Haskap berries

How long will it take for my haskap berry plants take to produce edible fruit after they have bloomed?

You should have fruit after they bloom, blooming means fruit.

They ripen for me about 4 to 6 weeks after peak bloom, depending upon the weather, longer if its been cool to cold.

I noticed today that my honeyberry (Haskap) plants had ripe berries (blue colour). I had boticed bloom at the end of April (or around that time). I tasted some but were not sweet enough yet. I will wait a couple of more days.
My plants are close to a tall spruce tree and not growing well and some branches are drying up.
A warm week in mid March followed by very cold temperature (-10C one night) caused apricot, apple and some sweet cherries not to show any bloom so there will be no fruits this year. So I should cherish the honeyberries.

I didn't like my honeyberries the first couple of years until I learned to let them hang for weeks after turning blue. Then they are sweeter with more berry flavor and less bitter or sour.
