Honey Bee Haskap vs Ranch Elderberry

Lonicera caerulea Honey Bee

Sambucus canadensis Ranch

Honey Bee Haskap
Ranch Elderberry

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.

Ranch Elderberry is a vigorous and high yielding Black Elderberry cultivar. It ripens earlier than other varieties, and is smaller and more compact making berry harvest easier. The berries are well suited for baked goods, jams, jellies, and syrups. They are high in vitamin C and reported to be beneficial for the immune system. Planting them near other varieties for cross pollination and in full sun will result in higher yields.

Warning: the seeds, stems, leaves, roots, and uncooked berries of the Ranch Elderberry are toxic to humans when eaten in quantity. You should cook the berries to make them safe for human consumption.
