Blackcurrant
Brianna Grape

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.

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.
