Tundra Honeyberry

Cold Hardy Berries!

Firm berries stand up to picking, yet melt in your mouth with sweet-tart flavor. Large berries ripen in late May- early June on 5-ft. bushes. Developed at the University of Saskatchewan, Tundra is exceptionally cold hardy. Best planted in partial to full sun. Plant at least 2 varieties for pollination. Zone 2-8.
