The most popular commercial variety in Scotland because it is a very heavy producer of large berries with the traditional strong, pungent flavor, and also resistant to white pine blister rust. The Ben series, named after the mountains of Scotland, are among the easiest to grow and highest-quality black currants in the world.
This bush is compact, upright to 5 feet tall and easy to grow and prune. Reliably self fruitful, but best production with another variety of black currant for cross pollination. Ripens mid-July. Better suited for areas without a mix of summer heat and humidity.
