Ribes Lowberry® ‘Little Black Sugar’®

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.
‘Ribes Lowberry Little Black Sugar’ is a black currant. The Black currant bush remains compact and only grows to a height of 80 to 100 cm. It is therefore also suitable for a small garden or balcony. Around the middle of May, this shrub blooms with inconspicuous white-pink flowers and is then attractive to pollinating insects. After flowering, the shrub develops black, shiny berries in large clusters. The shrub needs direct sunlight for optimal yield and sweeter berries. The berries of this shrub can be picked from June onwards. The fruits can be eaten fresh, but processing into jam or juice is even tastier. The fruit is best known from the Cassis drink. It is one of the healthiest berries with its high vitamin C content. The shrub can be pruned between February and March, then only remove the dead branches. The less you prune, the more chance there will be of berries. It is easy to maintain and will bear fruit after just one year. The shrub loses its leaves in the winter, but can withstand temperatures up to -34 degrees Celsius without any problems.
