Description

Try honeyberries for an unusual fruit to add to your five a day! These sweet blueberry-like fruits have been eaten for years in their native Siberia, and can be enjoyed straight from the bush, or baked in jams, pies and muffins. The sweet taste is similar to that of blueberries, with a slight aftertaste of honey. They are high in healthy antioxidants too!

The oval black-blue honeyberries of Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica begin to ripen in early June, in the first or second year after planting. This exceptionally hardy shrub is long lived and easy to grow, producing more delicious berries year upon year. Height and spread: 1.8m (6'). Spread: 1.5m (5')

Caution: It should be noted that not all berries of the Lonicera family are edible.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Pot up Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica plants and grow them on in cool frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside in their final positions. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions before transplanting them in borders outdoors. Grow honeyberry plants in any moist well drained soil in full sun. Honeyberries are self fertile but planting them in close proximity to one another will improve pollination and increase your crop of tasty fruits.
More Info
Feed and water honeyberry plants regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Honeyberries should be harvested in June as soon as they are ripe. Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica will begin to produce a worthwhile crop from the second or third year after planting. Initially, honeyberry plants will require only minimal pruning for the first three years, trimming out any dead or misplaced stems. Thereafter prune annually after the fruits have been harvested. Reduce stems to a pair of strong buds and cut back a fifth of the oldest stems to ground level to encourage new growth to be produced.
