I've never looked at mine close enough to see late blossoms, but for the past two years I have found a small amount of fruit on several of my Honeyberries late in fall.  I should pay more attention to which varieties are producing the outlier crops.... I have noticed one big difference for mine: my honeyberries still have all their leaves when I've found the fruit.
