The Blackcurrent Ben Sarek is a vigorous and high yielding deciduous plant which is good for growing in smaller gardens.  It has a compact growth structure with a height and spread of 1.5m.

It produces its heavy crop of large, glossy black currants on short strigs that are delicious tasting, easy to pick and of excellent quality. They can also be harvested easily by shaking the branches. These may need supporting prior to picking time as they can get quite laden down due to large crop they produce. The flower of the plant is white and unscented and the leaves are mid-green in colour.

As well as eating raw, you can use the fruit  in yoghurts and smoothies and they can also be frozen.

The Sarek can be planted very close together as they have a compact growth; perfect for creating a  low growing hedge. They are naturally frost and powdery mildew resistant.
