Honeyberries are just becoming part of the American landscape, and you will want to be among the first to grow this tangy, nutritious fruit! 'Borealis' is not only an edible, it is a multiseason shrub with fragrant blooms and a well-branched, rounded shape. Best of all, it prefers a bit of shade!

The fruit may remind you of blueberries, both in color and flavor. Oblong and a dusty dark blue, these berries are quite tart, with an underlay of sugary sweetness. Excellent for canning and jamming as well as fresh eating!

The berries arrive in late spring or early summer, just before the strawberries start coming in. You can extend your season of fresh fruit in the garden with 'Borealis'! Just grow it near any other Honeyberry for best fruit production.

Expect this deciduous shrub to reach about 3 to 3½ feet high and wide. In spring, before the berries, it covers itself in fragrant white blooms that attract the very first pollinators of the season. You will love starting the edible garden a few weeks sooner with 'Borealis'! Hardy up to -40 degrees F and best in mulched, moisture-rich soil. Zones 2 to 7.
