Risager is a new high-yielding, mildew, rust and leaf spot resistant cultivar from the Netherlands with very outstanding health benefits. The strong flavor of Black Currants is highly prized in Europe, even fresh, but most Americans prefer them made into
jam, syrup or dried as raisins. Bushes will grow 4-5 feet tall. Full sun-to-partial shade with fertile soil rich in organic matter. Partially self-fertile, plants produce best with another variety for cross-pollinization. Harvest July-August. USDA Zones 3-8.
