We have been working with the Honeyberry USA folks and will be offering three haskaps plus Crimson Jewel and Carmine Passion in our upcoming catalog.
PS I have enjoyed the paper Pomona very much and think I have nearly every copy.
Best regards to all,

St Lawrence is listing unnamed edible honeysuckle with the following

Edible Honeysuckle — Lonicera caerulea var. edulis

attractive to wildlife

At least two plants required for pollination.

From original parent plants obtained in the 70's out of Canada, these
seedlings have larger-than-average fruit that is tart but useful for
jam and jelly. The berry is blue and teardrop-shaped, with very tiny
seeds (like a blueberry.) These are the earlist plants in the nursery
to leaf out, flower and set fruit. Cedar waxwings adore them and so do
the bumblebees. The bush is not climbing and not invasive, reaches a
height of 4 to 6 feet, and makes a dense barrier that functions well
as a snowfence. for a beautiful ornamental hedge, plant 18 in. to 2
ft. apart..
