Blue-Berried Honeysuckle җ җ җ

Lonicera caerulea or honeyberry is a relatively new introduction into the UK and are edible forms of the honeysuckle also known as blue honeysuckle. The fruits are very similar to blueberries in taste and looks, and can be eaten raw or used in jams and jellies. Like blueberries they are high in antioxidants and vitamin C and make an interesting addition to your fruit collection. However they do not mind acidic or alkaline soil which makes them a great alternative for people who struggle to grow blueberries. Best grown in pairs or more for cross pollination.
