Have you ever tried a Honeyberry? If not, we'd like to describe the taste to you: Blackberry-Wild Blueberry-Currant-Cherry-Kiwi-Grape with a touch of Honeysuckle. Or, we can describe it as just plain delicious! The Tundra Honeyberry Plant (Lonicera caerulea 'Tundra') is great fruit, especially for northern gardens. They look like elongated blueberries and are so thin-skinned they actually melt in your mouth!
Tundra berries are thicker-skinned than other Honeyberries, so they take firm handling better. But don't let their skin fool you - these are some tough berries. As their name suggests, these guys can handle the cold...and by cold, we mean COLD. They are hardy to -55 degrees and the flowers are hardy to 20 degrees!
We bet you'll be the first in your neighborhood to have some of these, so order now before your neighbors become the Farmer's Market stars. They need a pollinator, so order one of Tundra's sister plants, too, like Berry Blue Honeyberry or Honeybee™.
Tundra is a first-rate fresh-eating berry, but you'll be the star of the Farmer's Market if you jar up a batch of jam! Try them in pies and muffins, too - anywhere that you'd use a blueberry without worrying about pH. Jams, tarts, breakfast cereal, baked goods and more, are perfect uses for this antioxidant-rich Superfruit! Tundra is a first-rate fresh eating berry, but you'll be the star of the Farmer's Market if you jar up a batch of jam! Try them in pies and muffins, too - anywhere that you'd use a blueberry.
The bushes themselves are great low privacy hedges, focal points and specimen plants and good for placing in containers and large planters in the sun. Anchor garden beds and shade vegetable and herb gardens with these unique bushes, or use as a backdrop to other berry bushes and perennials.
Tundra Honeyberries are long-lived (50 years+) and plants older than 5 years can produce between 2 and 10 pounds of berries a season! They love the sun in the north and a little shade in the south and just about any soil will do, even clay soils.
Grow your own superfruit with ease by ordering the Tundra Honeyberry Bush with its pollinator today from NatureHills.com!
