Borealis Haskap Berry Honeysuckle

Lonicera caerulea kamtschatica 'Borealis'

$29.00 + GST

An interesting hardy shrub with clean green foliage throughout the season and a yellow colouring in the fall. Spring blooms are a creamy-white accenting the magnificent blue round berries in late spring. Sweet, tangy flavour is great for fresh eating and canning, but do not over-handle as the fruit will bleed.
