Nigrum produces large blackcurrants and these have a high juice content and an exquisite flavour- making them ideal for juicing. The bush is a heavy cropper and the berries freeze well so they can keep you going over winter. This bush also boasts a good disease resistance, particularly to powdery mildew. A great all-rounder. This black currant is a useful plant in a kitchen garden or wildlife garden even if you don’t like black currants as its blossom is attractive to pollinating insects and the currants provide food for birds and mammals.
