Known for heavy, commercial production, Ben Nevis is a sister seedling of Ben Lomond, with large, firm berries by mid-season. It has good frost tolerance and has fruited well in the Edmonton region with no signs of over-wintering problems. This currant variety comes from the Scottish Crop Research Institute (SCRI) and is made to resist rust, grow vigorously, and yield great production. Ideal for jams and jellies. The leaves have a strong black currant aroma. Blooms early to mid spring. Allow for good air circulation as this currant can be susceptible to mildew.
