[NAFEX] honeyberry

I have all of the varieties you mentioned.  I don't think the plants are bothered by the frosts, but I have problems with getting the flowers of the earlier ones pollinated due to the lack of pollinator activity.  So the later ones fruit more reliably here in the zone 5 Appalachian foothills. 

In terms of timing, I can check against apples in a bit but do not have apricots.

I'm wondering about the susceptibility  of honeyberry to getting smacked 
by early frost, which we have terrible problems with here in NM at 
7000ft.  Burnt Ridge says that some varieties (Blue Bird and Blue Belle) 
are very early but that others (Blue Moon, Blue Velvet) are later blooming.

Any ideas on whether the late blooming ones might make it? Guess I'm 
asking what other fruits the late blooming ones might compare to.  Are 
we comparing honeyberries to apricots or honeyberries to apples? Help.
