I don't think late frosts really are any problem with the honeyberries, last year we had one of the latest and coldest springs, they seem to tolerate the cold quite well.  But I agree on the lack of pollinators  that early in the spring.  The other major problem are the birds getting the fruit before you.  They are early and you should be checking them often because their fruiting process is quite short, and a remay cover is probly a good idea.The birds and possibly squirrels will clean them right off.  I llove the fruit  in pies,muffins,jam,oatmeal porridge after the fruit is cooked it is very tasty. Raw, the ones I have collected fruit from have a tart side,and I do sorta have a sweet tooth.
