This outstanding early blackcurrant variety produces shiny black fruits that are over double the size of standard blackcurrants, but with a much sweeter flavour making them suitable for picking and eating fresh, straight off of the bush.  ‘Big Ben’ crops extremely heavily from late June/July and was bred at the Scottish Crop Research Institute (SCRI).  It shows good resistance to both mildew and leaf spot and has recently been awarded the coveted ‘Award of Garden Merit’ by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Available for despatch from late November until late March.


Please note - We strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
