Blackcurrant (ribes nigrum) 40-60cm Bareroot

Currant Blackcurrants - ribes nigrum

Blackcurrants  (ribes nigrum)are in season now and should be enjoyed by many home grown gardeners.  They are healthy, delicious, and very healthy!  Next to the blueberry and goji berry, the blackcurrant may be the better of the new super fruits on the block!  The fruit of the blackcurrant bush holds a load of nutrients and stores them well in the deep purple skin of the fruit.  They hold four times more vitamin C than oranges, have the best antioxidant polyphenols (anthocyanin’s) that are beneficial in maintaining cardiovascular health, ageing, and healthy vision.

Blackcurrants are used widely for jam, especially mixed with blueberries and you have something that makes the taste buds just pop.  They have a natural pectin and acid making them a gift to jam makers.  They can be frozen when harvested for use later so there is no reason not to stock up now!Blackcurrants  (ribes nigrum)are in season now and should be enjoyed by many home grown gardeners.  They are healthy, delicious, and very healthy!  Next to the blueberry and goji berry, the blackcurrant may be the better of the new super fruits on the block!  The fruit of the blackcurrant bush holds a load of nutrients and stores them well in the deep purple skin of the fruit.  They hold four times more vitamin C than oranges, have the best antioxidant polyphenols (anthocyanin’s) that are beneficial in maintaining cardiovascular health, ageing, and healthy vision.
