Lonicera caerulea var. edulis
A unique species of Honeysuckle, Honeyberry is a very hardy, small shrub native to eastern Siberia, the Russian Far East, and northern Japan. Very early ripening, Honeyberry is valued for its sweet and tasty Blueberry-like fruit and for its exceptional hardiness, to minus 40° F. or below. Great for fresh eating, Honeyberry also makes delicious and nutritious juice and preserves.We offer both early and late blooming varieties. The late blooming types are more productive in the maritime Northwest climate, where pollinators are often not available for the earlier blooming varieties. Both early and late blooming forms produce abundant crops in most other regions of the US.
Early Blooming Honeyberry
From eastern Russia and Siberia, these varieties are well adapted to colder regions and tend to be more upright growing. While blooming at the right time for the Mid-West, East Coast, and other colder regions,, they often bloom too early for good pollination in the Maritime Northwest, California, and the South.
