Honey Bee Haskap (Honeyberry) vs Royalty Raspberry

Lonicera caerulea Honey Bee

Rubus x Royalty

Honey Bee Haskap (Honeyberry)
Royalty Raspberry

Honey Bee Haskap is a hardy deciduous shrub. Honey Bee Haskap produces tarter fruit than the Borealis and Tundra varieties, and it holds its fruit longer. This Haskap's leaves are sunburn and powdery mildew resistant. Honey Bee Haskap makes a great pollinator for Borealis, Tundra or the Indigo varieties.

Royalty Raspberry is a productive and delicious red-purple raspberry. It is a cross between a red raspberry and a black raspberry. Ripening in late August, the berries are ideal for homemade jams, preserves, and fresh eating.

If you are going for more of a classic red raspberry taste, pick the berries early. But if they are left on the cane until they are purple the taste will be sweeter.

Royalty Raspberry is a floricane variety, meaning that it only produces berries on second-year canes. Do not cut this variety to the ground and only prune away dead canes as needed.

This very popular extra large berried variety was developed at Cornell University.
