Honeyberry
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.
Late Blooming Honeyberry
These varieties bloom up to 2 months later in the Pacific Northwest than the early blooming varieties. Later blooming means that more bees and other insects are available for pollination and fruit set is significantly better. These varieties are also good for east of the Cascade Mts. and other colder regions of the US.
