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. W
e offer well rooted 1-year bushes. USDA Zones 3-8. Partially self fertile, get 2 different plants for higher production.

Lagger of my 3

Similar in flavor to blackdown but way less productive; though to be fair the blackdown gets a lot more direct sun. Minaj is my favorite of my 3 has a much cleaner and less musky flavor than the other 2.
