Consort Black Currant - Ribes ussuriense
Currant Consort Fruit Consort is a productive rust resistant European black currant. It was bred and selected in Canada for immunity to White Pine Blister Rust.Clusters of medium size fruit mature in June on this small, compact bush 4-5' tall and wide. Consort likes rich sweet soil, but is widely adaptable and can thrive with neglect especially in the northeast US. Europeans love its assertive flavor and aroma and it is a benefit nutritionally for anyone that includes them in their diet, being high in vitamin C and omega fatty acids. Consort will grow and fruit in full shade and usually holds its leaves better in late summer in the shade in the warmer climate zones of its adaptability. It does not have showy flowers like American Black Currants nor is it the grape derived small raisin called currants in the health food stores. But they are cassis, commercially sold in soda, juice, wine, liquor or concentrate. Space 5' circle. Zones 4-7.
