On another thread we were talking about the honeyberries from Berries Unlimited. They went overseas and grabbed some excellent cultivars from Russia, grew many out and renamed them. Another site rated many as tart, tart/sweet, sweet, and sweet plus.Yesterday I bought three of the sweet plus category, 2 Russian, 1 Japanese, The Japanese is for chills. I picked up Blue Banana, and Honey Gin Russian cultivars, and Giant's Heart Japanese for chills. I'm going to experiment with some air layers to back up my cultivars. I put on 4 air ;layers on my figs the other day. An excellent way to propagate figs! It should work. I need to try on my existing honeyberries. I should get a very small crop this year. Maybe 20-30 berries. They have grown the most of any of my plants, here everything is just starting, they are leading. I should put the air layer on now. I may lose some berries, but not getting that many this year.
Oh they didn't have the cultivars listed on the site yet, as they are still propagating, but will have some in a month. I read about these cultivars on other sites, and they had them all. I called and they will ship ASAP when ready. They might be small, but they developed them, and are the only source. They will replace any that fail.
I have some older plants, three of them at my cottage, and will have 6 here. The cottage environment is low light so I doubt I will get many there. I can't get up there for 2 weeks yet either. When the ferry starts running.
