An old variety, grown since before 1847, but long since almost disappeared. We are very pleased to be able to offer this superb old variety that excels for dessert, pies and preserve use. The bushes are medium sized and very erect with well spaced branches, and the fruits are normally produced on short trusses with very large sized berries of superb exhibition quality. A true Goliath among blackcurrants. Cropping mid-season, the fruits ripen evenly and hold on the bush well,. giving a good crop of very high quality. The flavour is quite superb. Sweet, luscious, thin skinned fruits that are always bound to give pleasure. Goliath is a very old variety and is thought to be synonymous with the even older varieties Victoria and Edina. After many years' searching, we finally located stock of this old variety in Europe and our propagations now enable us to offer this variety again. A superb variety for garden culture, and a must for the connoisseur. Grown from European certified stock.
