Aurora Haskap/Honeyberry - Lonicera caerulea 'Aurora'

Aurora Honeyberry was selected by the University from Saskatchewan to be a companion variety for Borealis. Aurora is very productive and has large, sweet tasing berries that are easy to pick. One Aurora plant can easily pollinate eight Borealis and vice versa. It will also pollinate Tundra and the Indigo Series. Like other Honeyberries, Aurora flowers early spring with pale yellow blooms that are followed by blue fruit. Aurora fruit ripens late June to early August.

Plant in full sun in the north, partial shade where summers are hot. Very easy to grow, no pest or disease problems. Not self-fertile, so plant two varieties. Bears fruit one to two years after planting.
