European Mountain Ash
Blackcurrant

European Mountain Ash is an attractive, ornamental tree. This medium-sized tree produces tiny white-yellow flowers in the spring and decorative clusters of small red/orange berries in the summer. Its bitter fruit is often used to make Rowan Jelly, is a traditional garnish for wild game and venison. Ideal for residential lots, European Mountain Ash will attracts birds to your property.

Blackcurrant is a medium-sized shrub producing delicious, deep purple to black sweet berries suitable for jams, jellies, syrups and cordial.

Our Blackcurrant is grown from seed from the "Ben" series of Blackcurrant cultivars, developed by the Mylnefield Research Station in Scotland with a focus on cold hardiness and heavy commercial fruit production. Our seedlings will be slightly different due to hereditary differences but will be very similar to this series.
