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.

Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Lonicera caerulea 'Tundra'
  • Height: 4 - 8 feet
  • Spacing: 4 - 5 feet
  • Depth: Plant in the spring. Place the plant in the hole at the same level it was grown by the nursery. This is where the roots start and the tops shoots begin. Spread the roots evenly. Gently work the soil around the roots. Do not pack the soil. Water the plant thoroughly.
  • Spread: 4 - 5 feet
  • Light Required: Partial shade
  • Pollinator: Need two varieties for cross pollination. Aurora MB # 10094 will work well.
  • Yield: Up to 10 lbs. on mature plants.
  • Foliage: Leaves are borne in opposite pairs on the stems. Short, oblong, medium green in color.
  • Blooms: March - April for about 2 weeks.
  • Fruit: Elongated blue fruit similar in size and flavor to wild blueberries. Tender berry texture with firmer skin, good for fresh eating and baking. Very easy to harvest.
  • Zone: 3 - 9
  • Form: Upright shrub
  • Flower Form: Small white flowers.
  • Soil Requirements: Moderately well-drained, moist soil. Mulch with peat moss or aged manure to help conserve soil moisture.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: Little pruning is needed on bushes younger than five years old, other than removing dead, diseased, or broken branches. For more mature plants, periodically remove older limbs. Ideally, there should be four to six older limbs and a few younger shoots per shrub.
  • Comments: This unique plant produces an abundance of 1-1/2" berries that taste similar to wild blueberries. Enjoy its fruit in mid to late spring, even before strawberries are ripe. It is a member of the honeysuckle family and has been a valued fruit for ages. Plant two varieties for pollination, 4-6' apart.
