Sunrise™ Honeyberry

Even Better than Blueberries!

Honeyberries, also known as Haskaps, are easy-to-grow shrubs which are exceptionally cold-hardy, not bothered by disease or insects and yield some of the very first fruit of the season. They are not picky about soil pH and are quite easy to grow. Our select variety- Sunrise™ has a superior, rich flavor which our research team actually preferred to blueberries! Earliest ripening of all honeyberries, you'll be picking fruit from Sunrise before your strawberries are ripe. Growing to 3- ft. tall with an equal spread, Sunrise is attractive enough to incorporate right into your landscaping. Just be sure to provide partial to full sun for best fruiting. Plant at least 2 varieties for pollination. Bareroot. Zones 3-8.
  • Zone 3 - 8
