Honey Bee Honeyberry
- Growth Habit
Honeyberries are a sweet, tangy fruit that is somewhat similar to a blueberry but perhaps not as popular in some regions. High in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, they make a healthy and tasty treat to snack on, used in desserts, and making preserves. Honey Bee is very productive and has good quality plump fruit that is sweet-sour. It blooms in early to mid season. Don’t forget that much like several varieties of blueberries, you'll need a pollinator. Honeyberries grow best with more than one plant/variety present.
At maturity, this variety grows 4-6' tall and 3-5' wide. It blooms from March - April and ripes in May - June. Hardy in zones 2-7. Two varieties with similar bloom time are needed for cross-pollination. Grows best in full sun, well drained/rich soil.
One of the advantages of Honeyberries is that they can grow even in clay soil in wildness. They grow well in most soils, but the ideal environment would be loose and drained well fertilized with humus soil because the root system spreads close to the surface. Young honeyberry bushes require frequent watering since the root systems are shallow, usually less than 18 inches deep. Soil moisture content should not be allowed to become excessively dry.
