Crandall Currant (Ribes odoratum)

Please select all options.

Plant Description: Sometimes called “Clove Currant” because of its deliciously fragrant flowers, Crandall is an easy-to-grow ornamental and fruiting shrub. The early spring clusters of yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers are followed in August by abundant, very large, jet black berries, which are sweet and flavorful with a hint of spice. Their unique flavor is excellent for fresh eating, juicing, or baking. Their nutritional profile in relation to other popular berries and fruits is very impressive. Black currants are particularly high in antioxidants and contain more vitamin C than oranges, and nine times the calcium, five times the iron, and four times the magnesium and potassium of blueberries. Self-fertile and hardy to minus 40° F.
