Nope.  You made the right decision!  

Just one comment on what I read at the forum listed: Haskaps/Honeyberries are definitely not seedless.  In fact they have larger seeds than blueberries.  I know this for a fact because I have saved seeds from my honeyberries several times using a household strainer to clean/capture the seeds with no trouble whereas I had to do all kinds of straining thru paper towel when I save blueberry seeds a few years ago.  Burpee's sells theirs as seedless too.

Well, I probably shouldn't have, but after reading all this and some more, I ordered a Tundra, 
Borealis, and Honey Bee (new U of S pollinator) Haskap (or Honeyberry) from HoneyberryUSA.  Running 
out of room to put stuff...
