Haskap and juglone

I have not been able to find any information on whether Haskap/Honeyberry will tolerate the juglones released from Black Walnuts and others in the family. Does anybody have any experience with this?
Thanks.

i googled both haskap and honeyberry for juglone tolerance but could not find any definitive information either..Honeysuckle however are on the list of plants that are tolerant to Juglone so my guess would be that they would be as they are a type of Honeysuckle.

If you are unsure you could plant them away from the root zone and put in some barrier plants that have known tolerance and that will stop the Juglone from coming through the soil to the plant..like say Jerusalem artichokes, mulberry, paw paw, etc.

Gaia's Garden has information on barrier plants (by Toby Hemenway)

Thanks Brenda,

I don't have a lot of room to play with in my yard for buffer plants. After some more searching I came across something that said they should be ok. I think because they are a relatively new plant and being used a lot in the prairies where there are no members of the Juglandaceae family there hasn't been a lot of experience with this yet.
I planted a Borealis and a Tundra variety right under the drip line last night so I guess we'll see what happens! I'll try and remember to report back at the end of the season about how they did.

did some more looking and honeysuckle are on both the juglone tolerant and juglone intolerant lists in some areas...so I'd be cautious and keep them at least 50 feet away from the black walnuts
