Lonicera caerulea var. edulis Highly valued in its native lands of Eastern Europe and Japan, this member of the honeysuckle family is adaptable to almost all regions of the US. A very unique shrub, honeyberry is grown for its tasty blueberry-like fruit that mature extremely early (often 2 weeks before strawberries). It is also cold hardy to -40°F, very easy to grow, and has very few pest and disease problems. Plants prefer partial shade. The berry's dark blue color is thought to be very high in antioxidants. Great fresh or made into preserves. Two varieties of similar bloom time are needed for pollination. For zones 2-8.

Plants are 1 year old and ship at the end of April/beginning of May. Plants are in 3 1/2 inch pots. Order early for best availability. Complete growing instructions are included with each order.
