This outstanding dessert variety is the sweetest blackcurrant ever - so sweet that it can be eaten straight from the bush.

The plants are bushy with a slightly open, spreading habit, making harvesting so easy. Easy to grow and with excellent mildew resistance. Height and spread: 120cm (47").
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months.
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.
