Honeyberry 3L Pot by James McIntyre & Sons

Native to Siberia, this edible member of the honeysuckle family is incredibly hardy (down to -40C!) and is a wonderful addition to the ever-growing range of super fruits. The large elliptical berries are similar in colour and taste to blueberries, with a slight aftertaste of honey. The fruit is very high in antioxidants, loaded with vitamin C and retails flavour and form when frozen. Very hardy, drought resistant and easy to grow, with the added advantage of being virtually pest and disease free. Unlike blueberries, does not require acidic soil. Two varieties are grown together in our pots so as to ensure pollination.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
