Lonicera caerulea, also known as Honeyberry, Haskap Berry, or Sweetberry Honeysuckle, is a deciduous shrub that can reach 4-6 ft in height. Native to countries in the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere like Canada, Japan, Russia, and Poland, this plant features greyish-green oval leaves that are slightly waxy in texture and flowers that are yellowish-white, produced in pairs on the shoots. The honeysuckle is known for its edible blue berry, somewhat rectangular, weighing 1.3 to 2.2 grams. Within the species, there are nine distinct varieties each adapted to regions stretching from Northern Asia to North America. Each variety has unique characteristics such as size of berries, taste, and bush dimensions. The plant is winter-hardy, withstanding temperatures below minus 52 degrees F. Honeysuckle is not only a delicious food source but also forms part of traditional medicine practices in East Asian countries. The berries are used in a variety of processed products like pastries, jams, juices, ice creams, and wines.
