Blackcurrant - Ribes nigrum 'Ben Sarek' (2-3L)

Blackcurrant Ben Sarek

£6.99

OUT OF STOCK

This is a superb deciduous variety which produces mouth-watering fruit in abundance between July and August. These are very large and often cause the branches to bend under the weight of the fruits. It is noted for being easy to harvest and was specifically selected for small-scale growers where high yield per unit area, combined with ease of management, are important.

Displaying good resistance to mildrew and frost, it can also be grown as an ornamental hedge and has received the prestigious RHS award of garden merit. Currants may be eaten ripe off the shrub or used to make jams, jellies and pies.

To make blackcurrant jam, use 300ml of water and 600 grams of sugar to every 500 grams of fruit.

Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries

Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.

Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
