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 very promising new high-yielding, mildew, rust and leaf spot-resistant cultivar from the Netherlands.

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 variety for cross-pollinization. Bushes will grow to 4-5’ tall. We offer well-rooted 1-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8.

Very healthy plants

I bought several varieties of currant, and they all exceeded my expectations in every way. The plants I received are taller than some bareroots that I had planted last year, and they all began showing strong growth within a week of planting (zone4b)
