Description

The name alone is irresistible! Honeyberries have really caught on over the last few years — their generous antioxidants, big flavor, versatility and novelty have made them one of the fastest-growing “new” fruits in the U.S. With a sweeter flavor than other varieties, Happy Giant’s large, purply-blue elongated berries are easy to grow but don’t require acidic soil like blueberries do. Terrific for fresh eating, on cereal, in desserts and preserves, and an especially healthy snack when dried. Heat-tolerant if well watered, and cold-hardy, too. Grows to be 8’ or taller. Lives up to 50 years, and no pruning required! Ripens mid-June to mid-July. Best pollinators: Borealis, Blue Diamond, Blue Moose or Blue Palm. Zones 2-8 and Zone 9 in California.
