Product Description

The best-flavored honeyberry variety to date! Its beautiful, fragrant white flowers bloom first, and are soon followed by beautiful blue, elongated berries. They have a sweet, tangy flavor similar to blueberries. Honeyberries are one of the first berries to ripen in the spring, and are very cold hardy. Even a late frost won't stop this plant from producing! Its high yields mean you'll have plenty of berries for munching on fresh, for turning into jam, or for enjoying with springtime desserts or yogurt parfaits. Use with our Bird Netting to protect the berries from birds. Pollinate with Aurora.

Due to a supplier issue, we will ship a potted Borealis Honeyberry plant in place of the bareroot form.
