Ben Sarek

This dwarf fruit shrub (Ben sarek) reaches a height of 3-4 feet at maturity. Ben Sareck produces a good yield in mid-July of high-quality, very large, black fruit every year. These large berries have excellent taste. The Black Currant has strong resistance to frost and to lesions due to the cold. The fruit can be eaten ripe from the tree or used to make jams, jellies and pies.
