One of the highly regarded 'Ben' series of black currants developed by the Scottish Research Institute in the 1980's. All of them feature impressive disease resistance and consistently high production. Ben Hope has mid-to-large, flavourful, black berries that are preferred for juicing. The bush is vigorous, quite tall-approx. 2m (6'), and more upright growing than most, making the fruit easier to pick.
