Product Details

Bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute, Ben Sarek is an excellent early variety with a neat, compact growth habit making it ideal for growing in smaller gardens. Both vigorous and high yielding, producing heavy crops of very large glossy black currants that have a superb mouthwatering flavour and are of excellent quality. The fruit is produced on short strigs for easy picking, but can be harvested equally easily by simply shaking the laden branches. Due to its tendency to produce such large crops, the branches may need supported just prior to picking time. The fruit is ideal for all purposes and freezes well. Due to its compact growth, Sarek can be planted very close together so is perfect for creating a low growing hedge. In-bred frost resistance and also resistant to powdery mildew. Very highly recommended variety, considered by some to be the best garden variety in cultivation.
