Honeybee™ Honeyberry Bush (Lonicera caerulea 'Honey Bee') is part of the Honeysuckle family and produces oblong juicy edible fruit that is pleasingly tart with skin thin enough that the berry seems to melt in your mouth!
The Honeybee™ has fragrant flowers that attract many pollinators, all fluttering about your garden happily. Then about when your Strawberries are thinking of turning red, you'll start to enjoy these unique fruits! It's hard to describe the taste, some say it tastes like blackberry or cherry while others are adamant it's closer to grape or kiwi. Delicious fresh from the plant but they are also great frozen and made into pies, fruit salads, jams or served over ice cream!
Keeping your bush under a net while fruiting is a great way to ensure you get enough of this fruit yourself. However, since you'll be planting your Honeybee™ with its pollinator partner, you'll have enough to share with backyard birds and wildlife! Flowering in the early spring, it also acts as a great pollinator to other later blooming Honeyberry.
Also known as Haskap or Sweetberries, these fruiting bushes are highly ornamental and useful throughout the landscape for a variety of applications. Use these double-duty ornamentals as a border and hedge for screening or property division that also doubles as filling your berry bowl, providing nesting and shelter for songbirds, and privacy for you!
Since it does best with a pollinator, plant in long rows or groupings for increased crops. Or add as a backdrop to your kitchen and herb gardens, or as great additions to vegetable beds and orchards! You'll soon be a hit among your neighbors and farmer's markets!
Honeyberry do best in full sun, you'll get the most fruit in full sun, but Honeybee™ also handles part shade too. Preferring consistent moisture and enriched soil, be sure to also provide a thick layer of mulch over the soil surface for moisture retention and insulation.
