A good pollinator for Blue Moon™. A high-yielding selection that bears very large and flavorful, sweet-tart medium blueberries.
Blueberry-like fruits ripen before strawberries. Withstanding temperatures of -40 degrees, this unique member of the honeysuckle family hails from Eastern Siberia. Growing in popularity in America, the bushes display small, white, slightly fragrant flowers in March followed by fruits similar in color and flavor to large blueberries, ripening about two weeks before strawberries. Easy to grow with no pest or disease problems. Prefers partial shade where summers are hot, but plants are happy in full sun in the north. Not self-fruitful, so plant 2 varieties for cross-pollination if the fruit is desired. Bears 2 to 3 years after planting. Compact plants grow 3 to 4 feet tall. Blue Moon™ is the best pollination partner, or plant 'Boreal Beauty'.
