This variety was grown by Ken's great-grandmother. The fruit is large and has a little stronger flavour than Titania with unusual sweetness for a currant. They make a very tasty juice - Ken's recipe is 1 cup of currants mixed with 1/2 cup honey per quart jar, filled with water and then processed in a canner for 25 minutes.

A note on the "Grandma" Series: Inspired by this modest currants' success here at the nursery, we decided to curate our own repertoire of family favourites! Check out our tried-n-true gooseberries, rhubarb and raspberries.
