Consort Black Currant Tree

High in Vitamin C

Enjoy a delightfully sweet-tart, flavorful black currant—without having to worry about white pine blister rust. In late summer, Consort produces medium-sized black berries that are high in vitamin C and good for fresh eating, baking, jams and jellies. Grows 3- to 6-ft. tall. Immune to white pine blister rust. Attracts pollinators. Zones 3-7.
