Summary

Blackcurrants have a delicious tart flavour and are loaded with vitamin C. Eat them fresh off the bush or use them in pies, cordials and jams.

Bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute, Blackcurrant ‘Ben Hope’ is a vigorous and upright-growing bush variety producing consistently high yields of tasty medium sized currants. Highly suitable for growing organically due excellent resistance to gall mite and good resistance to mildew, leaf spot and big bud.

They are easy to grow, bearing masses of dark purple to black fruits in mid-summer. Blackcurrants can be grown in open soil, or in containers.
