I’m surprised that I still have honeyberries on my Blue Moon bushes in August. This is a later blooming variety and I have Blue Sea that blooms at the same time for pollination. 
I also have early blooming varieties including the Indigo series (Gem, Treat, Yum), Blue Forest, Blue Velvet, Borealis, Honeybee, Tundra and Berry Blue.

I also would've thought they'd be gone by now.

It's amazing to me that cross pollination is needed for honeyberries in places other than inside the city limits of Fairbanks Alaska. I travel the northern routes very well and also talk to Canadian friends. What goes on inside the city limits of Edmonton is not the same thing that goes on inside Fairbanks in regards to selfing of honeyberries (or selfing of pin cherries).

One of the early blooming species 'blue sky' carried fruit by itself for me in Fairbanks and I doubt it would have here at home. I think it might be parallel to the duration of the climate season and the avoiding of too much stress from early frost outside of the city. Pure speculation, but blue sky It served the queen bumblebee population very well due to the first flowers available to them.
