Compact variety suitable for small gardens

An ideal black currant for a smaller garden 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.
