Product Description

Honeyberries start your fruit season early. Easy to grow, with wonderful flavor, these sweet-tart berries don't have the bitterness that some varieties do. Berries ripen just ahead of strawberries in late May-June. Since they ripen so early, they aren't bothered by pest or disease which also means that they need no sprays. Sunrise is more vigorous than Early Blue and is our top recommendation for production. Another variety is needed for pollination, though, so we recommend Early Blue. One Early Blue will pollinate three Sunrise Honeyberry plants. Zones 3-8. Bareroot.
