Blue honeysuckle, also known as ‘mayberry’ (‘Maibeere’) in German, and more recently ‘Honeyberry’ in North America, is a poplar fruit crop in regions of the world where the edible-fruited subspecies are native: Siberia (mainly ssp. edulis, kamtschatica, boczkarnikovae, altai), northern China (spp. edulis) and Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan (ssp. emphyllocalyx) where the fruits are known as ‘Haskap’. The subspecies are sometimes given their own species name, notably those of kamtschatica.
