SKU: Ben Tirran Category:


Bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute, Ben Tirran is a late flowering variety that is vigorous and has a compact growth habit. It produces consistently heavy crops of very late ripening currants – excellent for extending the season, it also ensures that this variety has good resistance to frost. The attractive glossy fruit has a rich tart flavour and is probably best used in preserves and pies although it can be eaten fresh when newly picked – it also freezes well. Eventual height and spread: 1½m (5ft). Cropping season: late July. Self fertile.
