Haskap, aka blue honeysuckle

I've been thinking of writing something up about Lonicera caerulea, or blue honeysuckle, for some time now, but having run across this article by Maxine Thompson over at the Home Orchard Society website, it seems a lot easier to just link to it.

"Haskap", apparently is the name used for L. caerulea by the Ainu of Hokkaido, in northern Japan. Apparently some one's decided to stick with this name to differentiate it from the Russian types which are already being marketed as "honeyberries". It's all just blue honeysuckle to me.

I've heard varying reports on the quality of this stuff, ranging from "wonderful!" to "not worth growing". I've seen the plants a few times (blue honeysuckle, not Haskap per se), but never with ripe fruit, so I can't vouch for it myself. Dr. Thompson and collaborators have begun an actual breeding program, which is exciting...I'm always pleased to see a new fruit breeding program spring into existence, particularly in this country.

I was thinking of buying this plant from Jung. I LOVE blueberries and I really like the look of honeysuckle leaves, so I thought this would be perfect. I was having trouble finding additional information on it though, so I used Google, of course, and found your blog. After reading that article, I think I will wait to see if a sweeter variety can be bred.

Upon completion of basic military training, Flowers received a direct to duty assignment as a supply warehouseman at Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D.
After spending two years at Grand Forks AFB, Flowers was retrained into air transportation and received one of his most difficult assignments of his career -- casualty collection at Da Nang Air Base, Vietnam, in 1968.

In Vietnam, Flowers' primary mission was to haul wounded and deceased soldiers out of the jungle at night.

Upon completion of his tour in Vietnam, Flowers arrived at Norton AFB, Calif., where he met his wife. The two had only been married for two weeks when she received orders to Clark Air Base, Philippines; after six months of separation, he received a joint spouse assignment.
