Honeyberry - Lonicera caerulea Uspiech

Honeyberry Uspiech

A cultivar of Lonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica, Lonicera caerulea Uspiech is a medium-sized shrub with an unusual stiff, spiky habit. The small, stiff leaves are grey-green. The flowers appear in winter, and are followed in late June by cylindrical blue berries with a white, waxy bloom and a sweet, tangy flavour with no trace of astringency. Particularly good eaten fresh. The berries are rich in Vitamins C and A and anti-oxidants, and freeze well. Very cold-tolerant and easy to grow.
