Product Information

BLACKCURRANT

Ben Connan

Ben Connan is a compact early season variety bred at the Scottish Crop Research Institute.

Producing very heavy crops from mid July, the exceptionally large berries of Ben Connan have a superb rich flavour.

It can yield up to 8 lbs of fruit per established plant and may crop for up to 15 years.

Good resistance to Leaf Curling Midge, American Gooseberry Mildew and Leaf Spot makes Ben Connan a good choice for organic growers.

The bushes are also extremely frost tolerant making them very useful in colder areas.

Planted in full sun on any light, well drained moist site the bushes will eventually reach a height of 120 cms.

As with all blackcurrants Ben Connan should be planted in rows with 1.4 metres between the plants and 1.5 metres between the rows.

Uses include jams, jellies, puddings and pies.

When ordering please keep in mind that delivery dates may vary a little if weather or harvest conditions are difficult.
