The Honeyberry Bundle 4 pack is perfect if you are having a hard time trying to decide which delicious varieties to plant. The bundle includes two early blooming and two late blooming varieties each in the one gallon container listed below.
Honeybee Honeyberry ™ is an excellent pollinizer variety that starts fruiting at a very early age and holds onto its fruit better than most varieties. The fruit is slightly more tart than Borealis, but not as tart as its Russian ancestors.
Blue Velvet Honeyberry ™ is distinguished by its compact, spreading form, attractive grayish-green, velvety foliage and its very large, sweet-tart and flavorful, medium-blue berries.
A very popular variety with Japanese Honeyberry growers, Blue Hokkaido™ Honeyberry features an upright growth habit and very large, sweet-tart, crisp and flavorful, dark blue berries.
A vigorous and productive plant with an upright growth habit, Berry Blue ™ Honeyberry grows to be the largest of the varieties we offer. Reaching up to 8 ft. in height, Berry Blue™ Honeyberry produces abundant, large, sweet and tasty berries.
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.
