Short Description

Mid season standout for productivity.

Full Description

Compact, upright 3’ deciduous shrub that thrives in full sun to part shade, conjuring pendant clusters of large, easy-picking black berries. ‘Ben Sarek’ is a renaissance black berry: excellent eaten fresh off the shrub, or pressed into service in jam, jelly, winemaking, or what have you. Self-fertile plants prefer cooler summer climates, and, in hot locations, ask for a bit of afternoon shade. Highly resistant to disease. Prune as needed once plants are dormant.
