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).

The large, black currants of this Dutch cultivar ripen in early to mid-season. Vigorous bushes resist mildew.

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.

Hope for the Giant

After disappointing experience with Otello., a nice surprise.
The Giant is impressive. It came carefully packaged, good root system and vigorous branches. After transplanting to the ground, it didn't show stress.. Visually robust plant and I hope it will fruit nicely.

I have not received the information how the credit for Otello was applied since I was charged the full price for Giant and shipping.
I appreciate your answer.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a thoughtful review! I took a look at your order and it appears that we have issued you a refund for the replacement Otello you mentioned. If you have any more questions, please feel free to reach out at
