Honeoye Strawberry

Sea Buckthorn is a nitrogen fixing shrub that produces attractive berries high in vitamin C.

While we can't confirm claims that the berries are effective in treating various ailments, many people believe consuming the berries helps with arthritis, infections, and asthma, among other things.

Sea Buckthorn plants have attractive pale silvery-green leaves, dense branches, and large thorns, people like to grow in ornamental hedges or as a first row in a shelterbelt.

Note: these plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.

The Honeoye Strawberry is a cold-hardy cultivar that produces large, sweet berries that feature an attractive bright-red color. It blooms with small white flowers and commonly it is a top-selling berry on the market due to its winter hardiness, highly productive crops and self-pollinating nature.

The Honeoye Strawberry is a June Bearing (Short Day) variety, meaning that they typically produce a single, large crop earlier in the season.

The Honoeye Strawberry received the Garden Merit Award of the Royal Horticultural society.
