Ribes nigrum (Blackcurrant) 'Ben Connan' is a first class compact variety producing heavy crops of large, richly flavoured currants on short trusses, ripening in mid-July. Noted for good disease resistance and tolerance of frost, which makes it an excellent good choice for cold areas.

Height and spread around 1.2m (4ft). Plant 1.5m apart in well-drained fertile soil, rich in organic matter, in sun or partial shade, sheltered from cold, drying winds. Prune annually in winter or after fruiting, cutting a few of the older fruited branches down to the ground. Apply a dressing of Fish, blood and bone and mulch in spring.
