Q.I Would Like To Plant HASKAP BERRIES (HONEYBERRIES)
I read that it is best to have different varieties to plant together. Where can I purchase 3 different HASKAP BERRIES (HONEYBERRIES) plant varieties? Will the HASKAP BERRIES (HONEYBERRIES) plant cross-pollinate with the blueberry plant? Can I plant the HASKAP BERRIES (HONEYBERRIES) and the blueberry together without it causing a problem to the plants? I’m really interested in getting some of these plants growing. Is there anyone in Maine growing these plants?

Your extension agent should be able to tell you if they are grown in Maine.
To get berries, you need a pollinator of a different cultivar. You can't buy two of the same variety, in other words.
Your blueberries won't cross pollinate because they are in a different species. Plants must be of the same species to cross pollinate.
