Although Black September is likely the latest black currant to ripen, it will no doubt be done before it's namesake month! This old English favourite features large, very firm fruit with intense, robust flavour indicating the presence of all sorts of antioxidants. The essential fatty acids and high potassium in black currants, combined with these antioxidants has an anti-inflammatory effect, alleviating arthritic pain as well as playing a pivotal part in preventing cancer. Black September is hardy, productive and disease resistant.
