The details

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 ‘Big Ben’ produces enormous blackcurrants- two or three times the size of other varieties. Developed especially to be eaten fresh, the berries have a soft shiny skin and are extremely sweet. This variety can be wire-trained if desired and is resistant to powdery mildew and leaf spot.

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.
