Red Currant
Brianna Grape

Red Currant is a short deciduous shrub native to western Europe. It features five-lobed, maple-like leaves and bright red berries.

Red Currant berries are more sour than black currant, but they can be eaten raw and are excellent for jams and sauces. This member of the gooseberry family is related to the wild currants and gooseberries of North America.

Brianna Grape is a new grape variety with unique, tropical aromas of mango, banana, and pineapple. Ripening in September, you can use the grapes for juice, white wine, and fresh eating.

Not only is this one of the tastiest grapes on the prairies, it also has above average disease resistance. Consider partnering Brianna Grape with another grape variety to get a higher yield.
