Honeyberry Collection

Even Better Than Blueberries!

Honeyberries—also known as Haskaps—are easy-to-grow shrubs that are exceptionally cold-hardy. Not bothered by disease or insects, honeyberries yield some of the very first fruit of the season—ripening from late May to early June. Not picky about soil pH like blueberries, our select varieties—Sunrise™ and Tundra—have a superior, rich, sweet-tart flavor. Our research team actually preferred the taste of honeyberries over that of blueberries! Best when planted in partial to full sun, incorporate honeyberries right into your landscaping for an edible surprise. Honeyberry Collection includes one each of Sunrise™ and Tundra varieties. Plant at least 2 varieties for pollination. Bareroot. Zones 3-8.
  • Zone 3 - 8
  • Height 2 - 3 feet.
  • Light Required Likes partial shade in most regions except in the far North where it can enjoy full sun.
