Blackcurrant Ben Tirran

Description: Tirran is a very high yielding late-season variety that's good for vitamin 'C'. Produces medium berries with excellent fruit quality and high colour stability. It produces heavy crops of late ripening currants with good frost resistance – excellent for extending the season.

History: Developed in the UK by the Scottish Crop Research Institute.

Blackcurrant Growing Tips: Best planted in a sunny position that's sheltered from cold winds and late frosts. Prefer moisture-retentive soils that are well-drained but will tolerate a wide range of soils. When planting in the autumn or spring, cut back all of the shoots after planting. Although it will lose it's first year fruits, it will benefit the bush long term.
