Ribes nigrum 'Titania'

BLACK CURRANTS ARE PROHIBITED TO DE, ME, NC, NJ, WV, VA, MI, MA, OH& RI. Rust resistant varieties may be shipped to OH & MI (with permit).

A highly productive, mildew and white pine blister rust-resistant cultivar. It grows quickly to 6' tall and produces bountiful clusters of large black currants. Plant patent #11439.

Black currants have outstanding health benefits, including high Vitamin C content, up to 5 times that of oranges by weight. They have twice the potassium of bananas and twice the antioxidants of blueberries. The antioxidants, essential fatty acids and potassium in black currants have anti- inflammatory impact, reducing the effects of arthritis. Its antioxidant action has been shown to help prevent cancer. The strong flavor of Black Currants is highly prized in Europe, even fresh, but most Americans prefer them made into jam, syrup or dried as raisins. Partially self fertile plants produce best with another R. nigrum variety for cross-pollinization. Bushes will grow to 4-5’ tall. We offer well rooted 1-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Does this bush self pollinate or would I need more than one?

    It is partially self fertile. To get a fully fruit set you will need another black currant entirely, not just additional Titania currants.

  • Does "prohibited to VA" mean you cannot sell to those states or can only sell to those states? In reference to TITANIA BLACK CURRANT.

    Cannot be sold or shipped to those states. There is a quarantine.

Bare root took nearly a month to respond.

Although this plant took a while to sprout growth, after a month in the ground it is growing very well.

Titania Black Currant

I ordered this black currant last Fall and it was shipped to me this Spring in perfect condition. It has since grown and has a little cluster of currants on it already. I am looking forward to when it matures and starts some real production. But for now, thankyou Raintree for sending such a beautiful, healthy currant.

Spectacular

They arrived packaged perfectly. Pulled them out and life got busy they set out side for five days before I had a chance to plant. Surprisingly the roots where still vibrant and healthy. After only three days in the ground I have new growth. I will always return for my edible bushes.

Late spring!

Very cold and rainy here until yesterday. Shipment arrived in great condition. We put each in 2 gall pots with compost and mulch in an area protected from deer. The root balls were impressive and appears we should get fruit this season..... Still has not broke dormancy however. So can't tell yet if they will, so will wait to put n permanent home until we know.
