Rich in Vitamin C with a sweet aftertaste
This is one of the most popular varieties of blackcurrant grown in the UK and requires minimum pruning between seasons. It is well suited to colder climates and frost pockets. It also has Mildew resistance making it a very hardy plant.

Flowering in early May, the crop is ripe by the last week of July making it a mid-season variety. These plants produce heavy clusters of large berries along the stems.

Can be grown in: Dig a good sized hole and pop your plant in just below ground level and cover with soil. Can be grown in pots initially, however you will need to increase the pot size as the plant begins to establish itself.

In the kitchen: This harvested berry is delicious in summery puddings, used for making jams or even freezing.

Can be delivered from: Late April onwards. This plant will arrive in 2 litre pot. We will also include a handy grow guide packed full of advice to help you look after your new plant.

When we deliver
We deliver these plants from late November until March, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as the fruit bushes and canes are dispatched when they are dormant as this is the best time for them to travel and be planted, so we are a little dependant on the weather.

Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.

We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
