Honeyberries are ripe for the picking at Farm LoLa in Wrenshall.

The unique fruit is native to Siberia, but Lucie Amundsen said the Northland's climate is close enough to grow them here. 

Farm Lola offers seven varieties of honeyberries. Some are sweet, others more tart. 

"The best way to think about it is if a blueberry fell in love with a pack of SweeTarts," Jason Amundsen said. 

They ripen sooner than other berries, like the raspberries and blueberries grown a couple hundred yards away. 

Georgia Moujouros was there picking with her family. She said they planned to eat the berries plain or put them in ice cream. 

"I tried one just a couple minutes ago. They're really tart but really good," Moujouros said. 

People can pick on Saturday morning from 8-11 a.m. It's probably the last day of picking.

The farm is located on Cemetery Road in Wrenshall. Honeyberries are $6 per pound.
