('productnameshort')

Ribes nigrum 'Consort' is a highly productive black currant with very flavourful medium sized fruit.


Description:
Ribes odoratum 'Crandall' is often called clove currant because of its sweetly fragrant flowers that occur in early spring. These are followed by very large, sweet, flavourful, black berries with a slight spicy character in late summer. A very hardy and disease resistant, upright growing bush.
