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.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 3

Recommended Use: fresh eating, juice

Ripens: Early July

Pollination: Self-pollinating

Size: 1 yr. No. 1 (minimum 20 cm tall)

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.
