Currant - Consort Black

 Self Fertile Abundant Currants


The Consort Black Currant is a deciduous shrub bearing edible fruit. It would look lovely in a naturalized area, as a group planting, or as a single specimen plant in your yard.


Your Consort Black Current will certainly provide succulent fruit, but it’s also a lovely ornamental bush.


White, bell-shaped flowers hang from the plant in 1-2 inch clusters in the spring. These floral beauties also emit a pleasing, sweet fragrance that will attract bees and butterflies to your yard.


Even without your Currant’s floral artistry, its light green foliage gives your shrub a lively, vital appearance.


As the blooms of your Black Currant fade, clusters of ¼ inch berries ripen into a glossy ebony. Just imagine popping one into your mouth for that explosion of tart-sweet flavor that only the Black Currant is prized for!


Make into preserves, pies or wine and still have lots left over to share with friends and family because your Black Currant will be a high producer every year.


Before the leaves of your Currant drop for winter, it will gift you with one more treat in the form of a blazing display of reds and yellows as it casts off it summer plumage.


Your Black Currant will grow to about 6 feet in height with an equal spread. It’s self-fertile, so you can just have one if you like and still get a great harvest.


The Consort Black Currant is a beautiful shrub that requires little care and yet provides a bountiful harvest. What more could you ask for in a garden shrub!

I gets lots of berries off of just a couple of currant plants to make jam with. They are good producers.

I have not used the fruit yet on the Consort black currant. I have used it for its color in the landscape. I have been told I am missing a treat. I will try them this year.
