NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Blackcurrant
Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry)

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.

Indigo Gem has fruit similar in size and firmness to the Tundra variety, making it suitable for commercial production or your home garden.

Indigo Gem is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Berry Blue or Aurora are great companion varieties.
