Fast growing, high yielding berry that is well suited for commercial production.

Extremely cold hardy plant as a plant and the fruit is very healthy. Requires cross-pollination and Polar Jewel Honeyberry is the best pollinator currently known.

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.
