Edible Honeysuckle - "Borealis"


The fruit from this bush is a blue, teardrop-shaped berry with very tiny seeds (like a blueberry). The fruit is tart but tasty and useful for jam and jelly.  Borealis has excellent flavor, and softer fruit than Indigo Gem; good for fresh eating.  These are the first plants to leaf out, flower, and set fruit in the nursery. Cedar wax-wings go crazy for them, as do bumblebees.  The bush is not climbing or invasive, and reaches about 5 feet in height.
