I had my first taste of honeyberry this year. They were of the variety
"Blue Moon".  I tasted them when they became blue - very sour.  I waited
and let them sit for another week or so, just until they became a bit
less turgid. Tasted again: much sweeter, not delicious, but OK fresh.
And early, I agree about the timing - it is a gift to have berries in
early May.

Again, my first experience tasting this fruit. My soil is mostly red
clay, tends to be acidic, but the drainage is good.
