Golden Currant
Brianna Grape

Golden Currant produces berries for jams, jellies, sauces and even pemmican. This currant bush is very dense, allowing for use as a hedge, windbreak, or wildlife habitat.

This plant is also a very popular rootstock to graft popular red and white currant varieties to. The resulting plants are taller, more productive, and easier to harvest.

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.
