(Black Currant)

Grown for its flavorful berries, black currant is a small to medium-sized deciduous shrub from Eurasia. An heirloom variety introduced before 1885, 'Boskoop Giant' produces clusters of plump, juicy, exceptionally flavorful, few-seeded fruits. The round, tart, long-lasting berries ripen purple-black in early to midsummer, becoming sweeter as they mature. They are preceded by drooping clusters of inconspicuous greenish and purple flowers in spring. The fruits are excellent for preserves, pies, and...

(Black Currant)

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...

Many currants are well worth growing for their showy clusters of small, four- or five-lobed, pink, white, red, or yellow flowers, which...
