This honeysuckle with edible fruit is being sold by retailers in my area as the new best thing. After researching them I planted three varieties to get good cross pollination.
- What experience have people had growing them?
- Do they perform as advertised: seedless large berries that ripen ahead of most other fruit shrubs?
- any pest or disease problems?
- how many varieties do you need for good fruit set? The literature is confusing on this issue.
Edit: we have only ever seen one deer in seven years and it was confused so I can't tell if these honeysuckle are a tasty treat for them. Right now they are just snack size.
