A popular and resilient variety of black currant well suited to growing in the eastern US.  Immune to White Pine Blister and very good resistance to mildew- solving both traditional problems of black currants. Large, firm berries with a mild delicious black currant flavor. The plant is a vigorous grower and can reach 6′ tall. 

Black currant berries, extremely popular in Germany and much of Europe, are very high in vitamin C and can be eaten fresh, but are traditionally utilized in very popular preserves and juices, and sometimes wine.  Black currants tolerate light shade, and in very hot summer areas should be planted in partial shade or 1/2 day sun areas only. They are being grown successfully in the Midwest and Ontario under fruit and nut trees.  Cold-hardy. Ripens in June or July. Self-pollinating.  CANNOT SHIP TO CA, OR
