Honeyberry Honey Bee is a fast growing medium sized bushy soft fruit shrub with small green leaves.  It has very high yield with berries rich in Vitamins A and C and full of anti-oxidants. Flowering begins in early Spring and is a good source of nectar for early pollinators.  Blue cylindrical berries form by July, and when ripe the berries will have a white bloom and flesh will be a deep red.  Fruit has a sweet flavour with slight astringency.  It has been bred as a pollinator for self-sterile varieties. It is very cold tolerant and disease resistant.  Honey Bee needs a companion variety for pollination purposes such as Blue Banana.
