Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

The sweetest blackcurrant ever! This outstanding dessert variety is so exceptionally sweet that it can be eaten straight from the bush when fully ripe. Heavy crops of large, firm currants - each one up to twice the size of a normal blackcurrant - are produced for harvesting from early to mid July. The bushy plants have a slightly open, spreading habit which makes harvesting so easy. This rewarding variety is easy to grow and has excellent mildew resistance.Height and spread: 120cm (47").

We supply established, healthy 1-year old bareroot pre-pruned plants which will quickly establish once planted. Cordon - Ideal for small gardens as they take up little space planted against walls and fences. Each tree becomes a trunk with short side branches on which fruit forms.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months (4-8 months for cordon plant)
Estimated time to best yields: 16-20 months.

After planting, reduce the stems to 2 buds above ground level to promote sturdy new growth. Keep blackcurrant plants well watered during dry periods, particularly as the fruits are developing. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from birds. Blackcurrants can be harvested from July.


After the first season, prune out any thin or weak shoots. In the following years prune out any damaged or weak shoots before removing 20% of the remaining stems to create an open bush, and encourage fresh new shoots to develop. Culinary note: Blackcurrants are delicious when eaten fresh in a fruit salad or added to a colourful and tasty summer pudding. Suitable for freezing.

Blackcurrants prefer a position in full sun but will tolerate semi shade. Shelter from cold winds and late spring frosts as these conditions may damage the flowers, and reduce the yield of fruit later in the year. Grow blackcurrants in rich, moist, well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure into the ground prior to planting. Plant blackcurrant bushes between late autumn and spring, at a distance of 1.5m (5') apart and a depth of 5cm (2") lower than the soil mark on the stem. Planting blackcurrants slightly deep will encourage the production of extra stems from below ground level.

Arrived a couple of weeks ago, well packed and healthy. Planted straight away and already have flowers forming on the buds - thrilled that I might actually get some fruit in the first year!
