Honeyberry

I got a new catalog today- "one Green World". Never dealt with the folks, but the description "Unique Fruits and Ornamentals from around the World" made me crack the cover and drool a bit.
These guys caught my eye-- Honeyberry - sets fruit early spring- looks like a real prolific plant with berries large enough for me to pick a quart or two. http://www.onegreenworld.com/Pages/ourplants/UnusualPlants/honeyberry.html
I've learned over the years that everything is beautiful, easy, and prolific in a seed catalog, but not always the same in real life. So I wondered if anyone had some real world experience with them.
I went to google groups first and ran across a few threads asking about them in 2002-- but not a bunch of folks saying they tried them.
I found this thread on gardenweb; http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/edible/msg0816221128604.html Not real encouraging- but it hasn't turned me off yet.
I'm in NY- a warm zone 5.
Thanks, Jim
