Large, chewy berries are great for snacking! Sweeter than other varieties, with a nice, dense bite. Curved berries are about 1” long and are packed with superfood antioxidants. Honeyberries like rich, balanced soil containing humus/compost, with a neutral pH. Mature size: 5’ tall and wide, a nice edible landscape addition. After a couple of years, bushes will provide 8-10 lbs. of berries each. No pruning needed as the bushes have a natural dome shape and dense structure. Ripens mid-June to mid-July. Best pollinators: Happy Giant, Blue Palm or Blue Diamond. Zones 2-8 and Zone 9 in California.

What about deer and rabbits? Do honeyberries need barriers or are they less tasty than blueberry bushes?
Debra D on Jun 3, 2020
I live in California so what is the best option to grow these since there are no other Honey berry varieties suited for zone 9?
Kristina S on Feb 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: These are a northern adapted plant that is unlikely to be successful in your climate. Even if you can keep them alive, they will probably not get the chill time they need to induce blooming. Look at serviceberries for something more appropriate to that climate.
Is there a compatible pollinator for the Blue Mood Honeyberry that is compatible in Zone 9?
frankied on Sep 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The blue diamond would be compatible with your zone per the description and should thrive for you and will pollinate with the blue moon variety.
We ordered a Blue Palm & a Blue Diamond in spring of 2020. The Blue Diamond leaves browned at first, but new growths seem to be much better; however, the Blue Palm has been browned & wilted since we received it. The leaves continue to wither & brown? Both are shaded periodically to eliminate browning due to excessive sun. Blue Palm also has a white, moldy looking layer on the leaves. The Blue diamond does not. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are in zone 6b. Thank you!

Gallon Pot Blue Moose Honeyberry
My Blue Moose Honeyberry arrived in great shape with the potting mix still well. As a result, it was in better shape than the Blue Palm Honeyberry I received a month earlier. It was smaller than the Blue Palm, but I can see new shoots coming up near the main stem. My Blue Palm still hasn't added any new growth yet but it also does appear healthy. I expect both will grow well here in Alabama, and pollinate each other well for a nice crop of Honeyberries in two years. Once I'm sure they both are fully acclimated, they will be planted at the sides of my driveway. I'm hoping they will quickly make nice looking bushes, and they should need very little pruning if at all.

arrived looking good
The honeyberry plants arrived looking good with the potting soil still damp. Fingers crossed that they like my North Florida yard and that the deer don't get them!

Arrived looking sparse and didn't make it through the 1st winter
The plant looked ok, not great, when it arrived. Planted it with my other berries. Now in the spring, all of my existing plants came up but this one appears to be dead.
