An ideal black currant for home garden or U-pick as it attains a very manageable size of only 3 feet at maturity. The large black fruits have wonderful flavor for eating fresh or making into jams, jellies, syrup, juice and wine. Gram for gram, black currants have almost 3-1/2 times the vitamin C of fresh oranges. Shade tolerant plants are self-fruitful but will set a heavier crop if another variety is present. Has excellent resistance to White Pine Blister Rust. Fruits begin ripening in July.

    Reasonably productive in Zone 5, initially did not like taste very much but after cooking to make juice or sauce, turned out quite nice. Cooking brings out the best flavor.

    Approx. two months after planting. Growing robustly. I removed the flowers this first year. Will try to remember to update next year in late spring.
