Honeyberry

Buy Online

Native to Siberia, this edible member of the honeysuckle family is incredibly hardy (down to -40C!) and is a wonderful addition to the ever-growing range of super-fruits. The large elliptical berries are a similar colour and taste to blueberries with a slight aftertaste of honey. The fruit is very high in antioxidants, loaded with vitamin C and retains flavour and form when frozen. Honeyberries are a versatile fruit as they can be eaten fresh and used in making jams, jellies and even ice-cream! Very hardy, drought resistant and easy to grow with the added advantage of being virtually pest and disease free. Unlike blueberries, does not require acidic soil, but two plants are necessary for pollination purposes.

Pruning is best undertaken in the early spring just as the plant breaks into growth. We would recommend pruning kept to a minimum in order to maximise fruit yield. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
