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. Honeyberry bushes typically grow from 3 – 8 feet tall, with oblong berries 1 inch or more in length, depending on the cultivar. They are known as haskap in Japan, and honeyberry in the Canada and the USA. A good replacement for blueberries if you do not have acid soil. Currently much work on breeding is being done with new varieties each year for commercial production.
