Grown by our Grandmother on her home farm outside on New Hamburg. Nearly thornless while producing large, pink, juicy berries. Steph recommends picking the berries when they are just blushing pink and letting them sit in a sunny window to ripen and get extra sweet! You'll know they are just right when they turn a soft red instead of pink.

A note on the "Grandma" Series: Inspired by Ken's 'Grandma Ethel Black currant', we decided to curate our own repertoire of family favourites! Check out our tried-n-true rhubarb and raspberries in addition to the currants and gooseberries.
