Reviewed By: jeri (Bethel Springs, TN)
Bought one of each variety, planted and waited, a few years went by and nothing. They didn't grow or produce. Finally they died.

Waiting to see what happens next year
Reviewed By: Dawn (Albion, NY)
When my honeyberries arrived they looked dead. But after a month of watering and waiting they started to grow new leaves. My first group fruited 2 years after planting. Not a very big crop to say the least- about a hand full. I am not sure but I don't think I planted 2 varieties. I didn't know better. So this year I got some more and did get different varieties. So I am looking forward to seeing what comes up next year.

Turned out well
Reviewed By: Keith (American Fork, UT)
The first order looked suspiciously close to death. In fact, one of the two required for pollination did completely die. The other was on the ropes. I called and the Gurney rep promptly replaced with healthier looking specimens. I planted them, plus the one that was clinging to life. All three did very well the first year in marginal soil and I have every reason to believe they will produce as advertised.
