Product information "Firstberry® Blue Sea"

Like all of the blue honeyberries that we have selected, this variety also has a rather late flowering time, a late ripening period in early June and immaculate leaves until late autumn. The origins used in the breeding of Lonicera caerulea come either from Russia/Siberia and the Asian part of Russia or from Japan where these berries have been grown for centuries. The Japanese varieties are characterised by a less continental character and in our climate, they are clearly more profitable than the Siberian, early flowering varieties. Blue Sea was selected in Oregon (which has a maritime, not a continental climate) from Japanese Lonicera young plants and brings the properties that are important to us with it: late flowering in March and it remains dormant, even if the temperatures sometimes rise above 10°C from December until February.
 
Maturity: Blooms strongly in April, matures in June
Berries: Very large, juicy, firm texture, sweet and aromatic (note: only harvest if flesh is purple-coloured)
Growth/health: fine, velvety dark green foliage, compact, rather broad habit; a beautiful garden shrub, even in autumn thanks to the dark green leaves, 60 to 90 cm high, 100 cm wide
Yield: Very productive, 2-4 kg per bush, usually in the first and for sure 2nd year after planting
Pollination: Other late-flowering varieties as pollinators are necessary; we recommend 'Blue Velvet'
