The honeyberry is one of the edible forms of honeysuckle, also known as 'blue honeysuckle'. One of the new superfruits, this fruit has very high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants. Consisting of edible, pillow-shaped, sweet fruits, the honeyberry is delicious eaten fresh, and also used in jams, jellies, yoghurt or ice cream. The plant is a recent addition to England, coming, as it does, from Siberia, which means it should have very few struggles with our climate!

Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

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.
