Long-lived and highly frost hardy plant cultivated for its tasty and healthy fruit, ripening early in our climate. Its upright form reaches 1.7 m height. Pale yellow, modest but rich in nectar flowers borne in the first half of April. The plant requires cross pollination therefore Lonicera yields fruit best when planted in a vicinity of other varieties of this species. The first berries set early – plants in the C2 container yield fruit in the 2nd or 3rd year after planting.  After another couple of years the crop is 2-6 kg of one plant.
