Probably the rarest variety in our collection, this ancient Redcurrant variety arose in Italy in the mid 1800's.
It has faults and merits so is best suited to the enthusiast.
A vigorous though upright growing bush, the flowers are early so it is better suited to an enclosed environment or maybe grown as a cordon against a wall. The berries are large, thin skinned,of excellent quality and have a truly lovely flavour. The strigs are quite short though and the berries do not hang long on the bush. A Redcurrant to be enjoyed as soon as they ripen.
Early season. Superb flavour.
