PollinatorAward

Bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute, Ben Tirran is a late flowering variety that is vigorous and has a compact growth habit.  It produces consistently heavy crops of very late ripening currants - excellent for extending the season, it also ensures that this variety has good resistance to frost.  The attractive glossy fruit has a rich tart flavour and is probably best used in preserves and pies although it can be eaten fresh when newly picked - it also freezes well.
