With large, luscious red fruits in profusion from mid July through to August, which can produce up to 2½kg of fruit in a good season, this plant is a strong contender for other varieties. As this variety is a late fruiting one, it will help you extend your fruiting season. With a superb flavour, sweetly sour and vibrant, it is a great attractor for bees and other pollinating insects. Without training, this plant will spread, but it can be trained to grow on wires or as a cordon.

Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

Blackcurrants tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 6.0 - 7.5 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

 
Customer Reviews

Average Rating: 5.0/5 (1 review)

Rating: 5/5

"Plants arrived very quickly, were clearly labelled and look to be very good value for money. They are in the ground and putting on good growth already. However, they were stacked one pot on top of another in the too large packaging and the bottom plant pot was smashed. No damage was done to the root ball as you had wrapped it in plastic to preserve moisture."
