Product information "Firstberry® Blue Moon"

The blue that appears in the description of Blue Moon as well as many other honeyberries, of course, refers primarily to the blue fruits, which also have repeatedly been touted as a substitute for huckleberries/blueberries. But if you look at the plant exactly, the blue gets yet another meaning: the leaves on the shoots of the firstberry® selections have namely a blue-grey-green colour that is very special and they can also be described as being velvety. In contrast to the Russian honeyberries, which lose most of their leaves in August and September and then look ugly in autumn, the firstberries® are still beautiful structure plants in autumn, even Blue Moon. The variety Blue Moon is our most compact variety and can be planted as a hedge: maintain a distance of 50 cm on the sides and cut to a height of about 50 cm. Just keep in mind that at least one different variety must be planted together with it, otherwise the pollination is not guaranteed.
 
Maturity: Blooms strongly in April, tends to be the latest blooming firstberry variety, matures in early to mid-June
Berries: Very large, dark blue, relatively "thick" fruit for a honeyberry (i.e. not as long), sweet and sour
Growth/health: Blue-grey-green leaves, very compact, wide-growing, approx. 60 to 90 cm high, also suitable for borders and hedges; Blue Moon is also suited as a hedge plant; Blue Moon is the most compact growing firstberry variety
Yield: 2 to 4 kg per bush
Pollination: We recommend 'Blue Sea' as a pollinator; the flowering time is then overlapped the most

Tips

Honeyberry firstberries are resistant to the spotted-wing drosophila.   Due to the honeyberry firstberry’s early ripening time there is little damage from the spotted-wing drosophila. At the time when the firstberries/honeyberries change colour there are almost no spotted-wing drosophilas flying around and they also have other food sources.

firstberry blue moon blue sea (Sonja Dreher)

Hello,
yes, Blue Moon and Blue Sea belong to the Honeysuckle family. But these are very robust, have nice foliage throughout the whole year, no mildew, and are easy croppers. I would give it a try.
Concerning the name.. this variety is our own selection, which we gave a name, so it can not be found somewhere else.

kind regards
Sonja Dreher
