Honeyberries are a very hardy and unique small shrub related to Honeysuckle but with sweet and tasty fruit. Native to Eastern Siberia, the Russian Far East, and Northern Japan, they are valued for their tasty, blueberry-like fruit. They are also extremely early ripening, often two weeks before strawberries. And finally, they are exceptionally hardy handling temperatures to minus 40 degrees F., or below. They are great for fresh eating, juicing, and preserves.
Late Blooming Honeyberry Varieties
These varieties bloom up to 2 months later in the NW region 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 Mountains, and other colder regions of the US.
