Aurora Honeyberry Plant

Ripens Before Strawberries

  • Elongated, 1½ in. fruit with wild blueberry taste
  • Ripens in late May, before strawberries
  • Produces up to 10 lbs. of fruit
  • Grows 4-8 ft. tall
  • Few, if any, pest and disease problems
  • Ideal for edible landscape
Start the fruit season off right with this early ripening honeyberry. Aurora Honeyberry ripens before strawberry season, often in late May in many areas. The elongated, 1½ in. fruits have a wonderful sweet-tart flavor that is reminiscent of wild blueberries. Many gardeners eat them fresh or make them into jams or desserts. The upright shrubs grow 4 to 8 ft. tall with a 4 to 5 ft. spread and produce up to 10 lbs. of fruits at maturity. Because the fruits ripen early in the growing season, they have few, if any pest or disease problems. Grows best in partial shade. Plant two varieties for pollination. Zones 3-9.
