Small, white, funnel shaped flowers appear in February or March and develop into delicious, teardrop-shaped, light blue fruit that ripens in May with high amounts of ascorbic acid and bioactive flavonoides. New to America, but widely grown in Russia. Raintree offers late blooming cultivars that perform well in both cold climates and in the moderate Pacific Northwest.
