Isn't that also a disadvantage, Lon? I was interested in honeyberry
because it was supposed to fruit so early in the summer, before most
other fruits became ripe. That seemed to be a really big advantage.
(However, from what I heard, there were a number of disadvantages -
"extremely susceptible" to leaf diseases in the Midwest, very quick to

If Haskap bloom months after honeyberries, they probably fruit when I'd
have an abundance of fruit, already, right?
