Blackcurrant (rubes) Blackdown plant bush (organically grown)


Description: Blackcurrants are one of the most prized soft fruit.
They contain a high volume of vitamin C and are easy to grow in any sheltered spot and can tolerate heavier soils than most other fruit.
They are traditionally planted before the ground freezes in winter.
The plant establishes best at 1-2 year old, as older plants tend to take a few years to establish and produce fruit.
The plant on offer is a 1-2 year old well-rooted plant with 1-2 branches, which can be pruned or trained as required.
The plant is over 45cm tall (due to them being organically hard grown this can vary but the minimum is states).
The variety is Blackdown, which is an early to mid season cropper with large fruit, which is slightly sweeter than most varieties.
It has good mildew resistance, which is a bonus for the organic gardener.
They are best netted over before the fruit is formed, as the birds will strip the bush in a few hours.
