This new, superbly flavoured, selection sets a new standard for blackcurrants and firmly establishes Ebony as a genuine dessert variety.
A very early ripening variety which crops during the first week of July (14 days ahead of Ben Connan) and produces large, firm fruit with a delicate flavour. Ebony is an outstanding dessert variety with very sweet berries (up to 15% Brix).
The bush is moderately vigorous with an open, slightly spreading, habit. This variety can be successfully grown as a cordon and on wires. Ebony is resistant to Powdery Mildew but slightly susceptible to other fungal diseases.
Particular care needs to be taken to protect the plant from Gall Mite.
