Ben Sarek Blackcurrant Bushes

Ben Sarek blackcurrants are early ripening currants. It produces excellent yields of large dark fruit on easy to handle short strings make picking a doddle. They are also delicious.

The fruit are so plump and juicy that, on a bumper year, they can cause branches to bend and snap, so be prepared to support them.

It is best to give this variety a sunny spot with good air circulation, to prevent mildew. 

As with all currants, Ben Sarek Blackcurrants should be grown with 1.40 metres between plants in the row and 1.5 metres between rows.

Browse our variety of currant plants or see our full range of soft fruit bushes.

Ben Sarek is one parent of Ben Connan, which is a taller and better plant overall, so we recommend that you add Ben Sarek to your collection if you already have your Ben Connan plants
