Description

New Product!

Named for its shape, these are some of the sweetest Honeyberries you can grow!

Blue Banana is becoming a staple for home gardeners looking for a honeyberry with large, sweet, delicious fruit right off the bush. Blue Banana plant is a Russian variety of honeyberry plants in the Blue Moose family. The big berries are juicy and sweet with great flavor – very refreshing. These berries are perfect for a snack or for blending!

Beautiful blooms in April lead to a plentiful harvest in mid-June to mid-July. This vigorous honeyberry plant has an upright growth habit and a dense branching structure.

This cold-hardy berry plant requires about 1,000-1,200 chill hours. Plant honeyberries in rich soil, with a pH between 5-7. For this specimen to produce, it’ll need a different honeyberry plant that blooms around the same time to pollinate it. We suggest Aurora or Honeybee.

Survival Guaranteed!
