Fast-growing cultivar, producing very high yields of cylindrical blue berries which hold well on the bush. When fully ripe, the berries have a white bloom and the flesh is deep-red, sweet with a pleasant, slight astringency. The berries are extremely rich in Vitamins C, A and anti-oxidants, they also freeze well. A good nectar source for pollinators early in the year.
This product is supplied in a 3L pot.
Plant 1.5m (5ft) – 2m (7ft) apart, in rows 4ft (14ft) apart.
Honeyberries will grow well in most soils but loose & free-draining soil with a pH of 6.5 would be ideal. They can, however cope with a range between 5 & 8.
Dig a hole approx 50cm deep & wide and place the plant in. Firm the soil around the plant & water in well.
Pruning is best done in early spring as the plant breaks into bud, however it is recommended to keep pruning to a minimum to maximise fruit yield. Mulch yearly with well rotted manure or compost to retain moisture & suppress weeds. Apply a general fertiliser in spring.
