Ben Conan Black Currant
Variety bred for larger berry size. Black currants are taller than red currants (to 5’) and produce deep purple-black fruits in clusters. The berries have a very strong flavor; heavy and musky with a slight astringency. Not as sweet as other Ribes, but are great for flavoring drinks and making jelly. Full of antioxidants and minerals. Can take more shade than gooseberries. Very adaptable plants–have withstood many droughts without any watering and don’t even blink at soggy conditions. Space 3’-5’ apart in row. Self fertile.
