Description

An easy-to-grow alternative to blueberries! Plants are compact, deciduous shrubs with soft, green foliage and delicate, cream-white flowers that appear in early spring. Great option for borders and edible landscape designs – even suitable for growing in containers. Large, deep-blue fruit is sweet tart with wild-berry notes. Contains high levels of antioxidants and vitamin C. Enjoy fresh, in jellies and jams, or homemade berry pies. Cold-hardy. Ripens in late May to early June. Best pollinators: Borealis.

I have two Borealis and want the Polar Jewel or Berry Blue to polinate but I am in Zone 7B. Will these grow well here?
Stephanie C on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Stephanie. Yes, they will. Polar Jewel will do well throughout Zone 7 (including 7b) and Berry Blue will do well as far south as Zone 8. Aren't honeyberries great? One of the best "undiscovered" fruits.

Survived a Polar Winter
We had a really tough winter with 2-3 weeks of single digit highs with no snow cover. I tried three varieties of Honeyberry and only the Polar Jewel survived

I'm happy with how this bush is thriving.
I bought this honeyberry bush last spring, and it's really taking off and growing good this spring. It had some blossoms on it too. I've always been happy with everything I've purchased from Stark Bros.
