• The latest Canadian variety bred by the University of Saskatchewan, originated from the Russian ‘Solovey’ and Japanese ‘MT46.55’ variety; launched on commercial market in 2012.
  • Grows into a dense and compact bush with upright habit, which reaches 180 cm high and 120 cm wide.
  • Bears oval and elongated fruits which usually weigh 1.9 g (max 2.1 g) and are sweet in taste; its fruits are easily noticeable in the bush and easy to pick.
  • Gives crop at the second half of June (Poland); can be harvested mechanically and manually; its fruits do not drop off. Usually one bush gives 5 kg of berries (max 6 kg); on average this variety yields a crop of 16.5 t/ha (max 19.8 t/ha).
  • In Muniakowice, (in our nursery) since June 2014 and in Bakchar (Siberia), we have conducted annual examinations for the sugar content in the Blue Honeysuckle berries. The maximum sugar content revealed in those tests equalled 16,5°Bx (Brix). For more details – see the table.
  • To receive an abundant crop several different varieties should be planted one next to another (to enable cross-pollination); ‘Indigo Gem’, ‘Tundra’, ‘Borealis’ and ‘Honeybee’ are especially recommended.
  • Our farm possesses license for propagating this variety, granted to us by the University of Saskatchewan.
