A small, productive deciduous shrub, ‘Consort’ black currant is notable for its pendent clusters of greenish-yellow flowers in early spring followed by grape-like clusters of nearly-black, tart, sweet fruits. It also has the distinction of being harmless to white pines (Pinus nigrum) because it is immune to white pine blister rust, a usually fatal disease of P. nigrum that most black currants can carry and spread. This plant needs four to five years to mature and produce full...
